Sprague's Pipit and 3 species of Longspurs
- A Chestnut-collared, Lapland, and McCown's Longspur(s) were found yesterday
on Fiesta Island in Mission Bay in the Dog Run fenced off area by Matt
Sadowski & Paul Lehman. This morning a Sprague's Pipit was found along with
the Longspurs by Paul Lehman.
Directions: Interstate 5 to Sea World Dr/Tecolete Rd exit. Turn towards
Mission Bay and then take the first right. Take the next left onto Fiesta
Island. The road is a one way, and wil take you to the right. The road will
eventually split. Go left, and you will eventually see the Dog Run. Good
Luck, the birds move around. The McCown's was towards the middle with Horned
Larks, the Pipit is toward the south in the green fields. The Lapland
towards the Southeast, and Guy McCaskie was the only person to see the
Chestnut this morning.
