The last week has seen dozens of sightings of the somewhat elusive Lapland Longspur in DeKorte Park. 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. We hope our Longspur is here for a while!
