This photo of a pair of Lapland Longspurs was taken on December 2nd, 2005 near Corson, South Dakota. This is how you often see them in the state...foraging along the side of a road after a snowstorm. They're definitely more difficult to find and get close to when snow isn't covering the landscape. Photo taken with Canon 20D, 400 5.6L.
