Farm road in the middle of nowhere


Moving the Car

7/10/2012: After dipping on the Upland Sandpiper at another location, I decided to check out a farm road that I had heard about nearby. I found the road without too much difficulty, and the area looked promising. I spent about half an hour here, and I did not see an upland sandpiper.
