"as the light slowly comes up . . ."

A recent visitor, John Van Den Brandt, posted this comment on a bird list serve: 

"My wife and I visited the Carl Flaig farm just outside of Stevens Point on Sunday morning to view Prairie Chickens. If you've never been to this location, I highly recommend it. The blinds are first rate and ideally situated for both viewing and photography. Carl is very friendly and he operates his farm in a manner that is supportive of grassland birds. It's always fun to hear the rising volume of prairie chickens booming in the total darkness. Then, as the light slowly comes up, you first detect shadowy motion, then vague shapes, then the outline of prairie chickens. When the sun finally crested the horizon, we were surrounded by 25 prairie chickens (including one briefly on the roof of the blind). Great viewing and high quality photo ops. The viewing season continues for several weeks".
