Buffies in NE

We were driving west through Nebraska on our way to California when I remembered "You know, I don't have Buff-breasted Sandpiper yet this year... wouldn't that be a silly miss??".

So while we were in Kearney, I searched "sod farm" on my iPhone and the resulting map showed a very close spot called "Gangwish Turf Farm".  I checked it first thing the next morning hoping I would get lucky and find a BBSA.  Surprise surprise, we actually did.  Here are the two birds:

You can view the sod farm from either Landon Street or from a warehouse parking lot up off 6th Street.  I highlighted the Gangwish Turf location here:
