I saw this guy, 3 other Longspurs and 2 Snow Buntings on 9600 N in
Penrose last night at about 4:00 P.M. I thought that Lapland Longspurs
have more prominent arriculars and facial patterns. In this picture it
looks to me like the bird is a lot lighter than what you would normally
expect. Any thoughts?
