Gitcha We've been up in that area after a trip to lake overholster looking for the elusive iceland gull over the last winter.

Some birders we were chatting with sent us up that way and we cleaned up on Longspurs in the dry grass by the road. I think we cleared out the entire list of winter sparrows on the same road.

Nice spot!

Thanks again,

Take old Route 66 ( that goes along the north side of Lake Overholser) and on west along the north side of Yukon ( just west of the Kirkpatrick Expressway) to Sara Road. Turn right on Sara Road ( north) and follow it north until it turns into a gravel road.
The large wetlands on the left(west) side is Rose Lake.
With all this rain it will be full of water now and really look like a “lake”. As it slowly dries up it becomes a large mud flat for the most part. Many shore birds stop there/ stay there/ feed there.
