Mowing the Grass....hopper Sparrows!!!

When teammate Zach called me last minute and said they were a bit shakey in the North on Grasshopper Sparrows I figured no problem I have a field right along the route with over a dozen males on territory.  I went there this morning to check it out and while watching the sparrows a tractor pulled up and started to mow the field!!  How unlucky can you get?  I watched the sparrows flying away from the mower (how sad) and went to look for a new field of these hard to find birds.  I did find another nearby though, so hopefully it isn't mowed this afternoon...
