Description: This was one of at least 5 or 6 singing males within a 150-foot radius in a hayfield below the dam at Shawnee Mission Park. (The field is actually part of the Mill Creek Streamway Park.) The birds are all acting very territorial, singing continually and periodically skirmishing along invisible boundary lines.
