Ano Strip Mines - Henslow's Sparrow

Would late April (27th) be too early to reliably locate a Henslow's Sparrow in Southern Kentucky? I had thought i might try for the bird at the Ano Strip Mines site in Pulaski county.

Would appreciate any local feedback.

Don't have first-hand local knowledge, but eBird barchart for KY indicates last week of April is as good as May for Henslow's. This map shows three records of Henslow's at Ano Strip Mines in April over the last 11 years--the earliest is the 14th.
