More Lapland Longspur Photos


Here are some photos of DeKorte’s current star, the visiting Lapland Longspur, courtesy of Ron Shields. A common songbird of the Arctic Tundra, the Lapland Longspur winters across much of the U.S. The sparrow-like bird shows up in the Meadowlands on occasion and is not always easy to find, so now’s your chance!

    I had the longspur this morning at the intersection of the Transco Trail and the Marsh Discovery Trail. The bird will feed/fly fifty yards east or west of this junction and usually hangs out with a small flock of house sparrows. It has been fairly easy to locate.
