Fiesta Island - 3 longspur species

Nick Barber

Andy Roth and I visited the Fiesta Island dog run this morning, 7:45-9:30. We had all 3 species of longspurs south of the eucalyptus trees:

-2 Chestnut-sided feeding at the same coordinates Nancy C. and others reported on eBird this week
-1 Thick-billed (McCown's) in the same general area, although it didn't remain in any one space for long
-2 Laplands that joined the Thick-billed, feeding and flying around with it

Also 1 Vesper Sparrow on the western side of the area.
