Chris Loudermilk and I had good looks this morning at a Lapland Longspur on
the Huie ponds in Clayton Co. One was seen this afternoon by Nelson Dobbs
and one or more were heard mixed in with a flock of Pipits (as they flew
towards the large south pond) by several other observers. The one we saw was
moving back and forth between the dikes of the northeast pond and the pump
station pond. It flushed easily but seemed to return to the same general
area, vocalizing as it flew. Eric Boehm reported two from this same area
late Sunday afternoon.
The Ross' and Snow Geese were not seen today as far as I know. I also had an
Orange-crowned Warber at the Wetlands Center...not a bad day on the job.
