Lapland Longspur

These were taken at the Coxsackie Flats in Greene County, New York on January 8, 2011.  We had traveled down to Coxsackie following  a moderate snow storm the day before which helped to concentrate birds on the road side.  Earlier in the day an American Pipit had been reported, but we were unable to relocate it, but the Lapland Longspurs were a nice consolation prize!

  1. Hmmmm, nice combination of species. I’d probably be more impressed by the Shorelarks, but that’s just my German perspective. They are very scarce, whereas Laplands tend to be seen a wee bit more regularly at the Baltic coast (vice versa at the German North Sea coast where I’ve hardly ever been).
