Comments: Large flock of Snow Buntings and Lapland Longspurs - 400 birds total; estimated 50/50 mix from numerous photos taken of flock as it foraged in hay/grass on side of hill. Horned Larks were few, and tended to stay toward perimeter or separate from larger feeding group. Hoped to find a Smith's Longspur but didn't...
Horned Lark 30 small flocks foraged by themselves apart from much larger flock of Snow Buntings/Lapland Longspurs
Lapland Longspur 200 Of 192 birds counted from photographs 97 were Lapland Longspurs and 92 were Snow Buntings
Snow Bunting 180 Snow Buntings actually fewer in number than Longspurs! see above.
