Subject: Jackson Co scoters, longspurs, larks & shrike
Yesterday, I was passing through Jackson County and stopped at Lost Creek Lake to look for longspurs. I was not disappointed as I counted 8 LAPLAND LONGSPURS on the flats in a flock of 'streaked' HORNED LARKS, another good fall bird for Jackson County.
On the water were 3 female SURF SCOTERS hiding among the American Coots of all places. A young NORTHERN SHRIKE was also seen on the flats on the way out.
