80 Acres: New Species, Rain, Pictures

New post up at the 80 Acres blog, with more about the first real rain (two inches!) of 2010, and the first new species identified on the place.   Pictures of the Goatweed Leafwing (just trying saying that fast ten times!) and the wet, wet ground.   We spooked a lot of little grassland sparrows on our walkaround yesterday, and a raptor we didn't ID (it flew toward brightest part of the clouds...so there was a dark silhouette from behind--not that useful), but no good pictures of those.
