Urban Longspurs

A change of weather has resulted in a significant stopover of Snow Bunting and Lapland Longspur along the North Shore. Friends of ours in Terrace Bay and Marathon, who seldom notice birds, have commented on the abundance and fearlessness of Lapland Longspurs on our sidewalks, back lanes and lawns. I found these birds along the CP tracks in town today.
