On May 22, 1955, Dr. William J. Calvert of Jacksonville State College, discovered a small population of Horned Larks, Eremophila alpestris Linnaeus, in an open area approximately one mile northwest of the Jacksonville city limits. Dr. Calvert had observed the same area for a number of years prior to 1955, but had never recorded Horned Larks outside their normal wintering period. He has since observed the birds each spring, including singing males, and concluded that Horned Larks were in all probability nesting in Calhoun County.
