I drove by this spot earlier in the morning, and no Lapland Longspur flock there.  My other travels took me back around close enough I tried again.  High count for the county for eBird of 203 Lapland Longspur.  Probably more that were out of the frame of the photo I chose to count.  One of my other pics have have shown more also, but who want to count over and over again.

Man! That makes the count of 6-8 I had earlier today look pitiful.

Glad to see the midwest is getting a taste of Redpoll mania! I have so many great memories from last winter. 

It’s awesome! Two irruption winters in a row? I’m getting spoiled. But this is nuts, a huge flock only 10-15 minutes from my house is pretty great.

That's amazing!

Thanks guys! Was a super fun outing, can't wait to try an all day thing in peak migration in May. Who knows, if I can get 48 species in the "Dead of winter" maybe 100 sp will be possible?

This place is awesome for passerine photography! Photography wasn't really my objective at the time, I was mainly trying to find more birds, but I should go another day and try to get more sparrow shots and stuff.

 I would've gotten 14 lifers...

Which ones? Mainly waterfowl? I'm sure you'll get all of these come spring.

Thanks! Yeah, mainly waterfowl, but also the Red-headed Woodpecker and my nemesis Eastern Towhee, and somehow I haven't gotten a Swamp Sparrow yet.

Swamp will be super easy in the spring. I think the woodpecker and Swans will be the toughest in your area. We get barely any all year that come through VT.
