The open farmland at the Ross/Fayette Co. line offered a welcome respite from the walnuts.
This area always seems to host Vesper Sparrows (at least from March through November).
Vesper Sparrows are common nesters along the trails in Madison County,
but are rarely found after they quit singing in July.

No unicycling during June, 2023. I had high hopes to get out exploring some new trails around the state, but I had to recover from a surgery and couldn't risk any injuries while healing. Presumably the breeding birds along my favorite trails would have been similar to June 2022 although I probably missed a few surprises.

While Spring technically continues through most of June, it is clear that spring migration is over and that I have already probably found all the resident birds that I am going to find along my regular routes (with the possible exception of Dickcissels, which sometimes don't appear until June). To keep it fresher every time I head out, I will switch over to monthly bird lists for my unicycle rides.
