New arrival – Lapland Longspur on Fiesta Island

[All photographs copyright, Gary Nunn 2015] – A new arrival at Fiesta Island, Mission Bay, San Diego County this morning was a single Lapland Longspur Calcarius lapponicus in among the Horned Larks and American Pipits. It moved off with the mixed flock giving a typical rattle call in flight. Not very approachable in the very open habitat conditions in the southeast section of the dog park.
