Tips for birding Chudzinski-Johannsen Park
This park is in the early stages of development. I went there looking for Dickcissels and Grasshopper Sparrows, which I found quite easily. This was a fantastic grassland prairie. The park is sandwiched between a river and farmland. Nice tree line on the riverbank. Very simple navigation since there was only one paved road to walk on. Parking lot was on the left as soon as you pull into the park, and the paved road was closed to traffic past the parking lot. A scope would come in handy since there are no walking trails off of the paved road and there was a nice looking pond in the middle of the park. I have never seen Grasshopper Sparrows at such a close range. It was very easy to take photos. Bobolinks were a nice surprise.
