With a brief respite while running around, I found a weedy lot behind the 
motel NE of I-494 and Pilot Knob.  Lots of sparrow type birds were flitting 
about and bathing in the puddles.  I ended up not having enough time to get 
a good look at all the birds.  The largest flocks were House Finches and 
House Sparrows.  Most of the birds would flush and fly out of sight, but I 
did get good looks at several Palm Warblers.  The one bird I was able to get 
a good line on was an adult plummage Henslow's.  This is the first time that 
I have ever seen a Henslow's which was not on territory.
