Lapland Longspurs, December 16, 2013

I had 6 Lapland Longspurs at the east end of Montrose Beach on this wintery morning. They were feeding in the dunes on grass seeds near the light tower. Oh, I almost forgot, I also had 4 and possibly 5 Snowy Owls. I saw one in the harbor when I arrived and then one on the beach and three on the fishing pier, including a bird that flew in. I didn’t see the Snowy in the harbor when I went back so one of the birds on the fishing pier could have been the harbor bird.
