A dozen+ singing Dickcissels in the Canon City area

Canon City is a marginal area for Dickcissels with usually no more than 6 or 8 singing males so I was pleasantly surprised to find a total of more than a dozen today. And I found them in several agricultural fields where they have not been reported before.
Additionally I found 2 singing male Dickcissels in the hay field where I found the first of this species for Fremont County,CO 15 or more years ago but where they have not been found for some years--while it is still a hay field it has been purchased by our local Recreation District for future sports fields and is part of Pathfinder Park.
The pic above is interesting with the crown feathers standing straight out making a head piece for this bird. SeEtta
