On this visit I managed to capture a photo of the single Lapland Longspur that had eluded me on the first visit. Sad fact to this photo was that after finding the bird in my scope, and then trying to find it in my binoculars, when I raised my camera, I had no idea what I was seeing. I just saw something moving in all the piles of cattle manure, I just started taking photos. Surprised to get home and find I had the right bird. We did manage to find and see all 3 species of longspurs; Chestnut-collared, McCown's, and Lapland .
And of course Pyrrhuloxia is never a bad bird to see.
