[Mtn-birds] Chestnut Collared Longspur
- Hey mountain comrades,
Today in Eldorado County at South Lake Tahoe, Mike Bumgardner and I
first year male- Chestnut Collared Logspur. The bird was seen with a
of about twenty Horned Larks at the Tahoe Keys Marina off of Venice
East. From the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 89, drive east on Hwy 50
about one mile or so and go left on Tahoe Keys Blvd. Take this about
a half miles and go right on Venice Drive East. Take VDE to the very
to a circle turn around (prior to the marina). Park here and go the
head located just to the east of the turn around. Go through the fence
gate and you are on the trail that parallels the field in which the
found. You may need to walk through the small field to find the flock.
bird never vocalized so if you dont hear it just look for the smaller
with an obvious white flash in flight.
