  11/19/11--Sprague's Pipit, Okaloosa County landfill.  Observer: Alex 
Harper.  Directions: (Alex Harper)  The landfill is known for being part 
of the "Ft. Walton Beach Spray Fields", a collective name for three 
sites within proximity to each
other that are just north of Beal Parkway in northern Ft. Walton
Beach. To get to this particular landfill from Beal Parkway northbound, look
for N Beal Extended, which bends around a laundry mat (you should take
a look on google maps, as it can get tricky). Head north on N Beal
Extended until it reaches the landfill on the left. Birders must check
in at the guard gate. I believe the hours of operation are Monday
through Saturday, 8:00-3:30. Here is the laundry mat address so that you 
can get an idea of where N Beal Extended is. Google it and click on the 
provided map: 1314 Lewis Turner Boulevard, Fort Walton Bch, FL 32547.

Drive past the pond on the left upon entering.Proceed north, with the 
fence to the right of you. There is a clay road that intersects this 
road on the left. Take the sharp left onto this road for about 0.25 
miles. Right before the road curves right,
pull off and park. Walk the area to the left (east), making your way
towards the mound. A  LeConte's Sparrow was flushed from damper area (look
for the dark green, hydrophytic plants). The Sprague's Pipit was seen  
further east, flying out of a small patch of short, dark brown grass, 
which was surrounded
by presumably less suitable taller grass. Many Wilson's Snipes flushed 
out of this area.
