Northumberland farmland, Saratoga, New York, US
Jan 6, 2018 12:25 PM - 2:17 PM
Protocol: Traveling
8.0 mile(s)
Comments: In 5 degrees and gusts up to 20 mph, you could say it was cold. Still, enjoyed checking out Northumberland. Had 250+ Horned Larks and 40 + Snow Buntings on Clark Rd and Selfridge Rd. Without John H., no Lapland Longspurs were found! Mostly little feeding flocks along roadsides. A little bit of open water on Harris road had Mallards and Geese. No birds of prey seen until I saw RTH on Northway on the way home
