Lapland Longspur

February 25, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Lapland Longspur is a welcome find on the coastal barrens in my area. I usually find them heading south in November/December rather than when they are heading north. Some birds use the central flyway to their nesting grounds on the barrens at or near the tree line and coastal routes on their return migration. They nest in abundance in open country in Newfoundland. I have found them here in my area of Portuguese Cove in mid summer.

They are not a shy bird but they do keep their distance.
