Subject: [Tweeters] Longspurs at Midway Beach
While checking the shorebird ponds near Midway Beach today I encountered
the largest flock of Lapland Longspurs I have seen on the coast They were
flighty and hard to count but I would estimate between 60 and 75 in the
flock. They were feeding on beach grass seed heads out near the open beach
a bit north of the old Midway Beach access road. The pond levels are high
for shorebirds and I only saw one long-billed dowitcher among the many
ducks. Also, saw one American Bittern.
