I led a fantastic Saturday trip to (Weld County-annexed) Chalk Bluffs Road (by far easiest place in "Weld County" to view both longspurs) ... :-) ... we saw both adults and immatures (probably underestimated, too):
McCown's Longspur - Three dozen+. At one point we had group of a dozen sitting together on fence line Chestnut-collared Longspur - Two dozen+ with some small groups Loads of Grasshopper Sparrow, Horned Lark, Western Meadowlark, and Lark Bunting, of course Photos: http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Chalk-Bluffs-Road-07-15-2017/
Chalk Bluffs Road if you haven't been there has some exquisite taller grasses and a plethora of longspurs.
Other bird sightings over weekend (Sunday and Monday):
