Smith's Longspur

I have been on the road the last week or so in Niagara and Kingston and so haven't had a chance to post lately.  On my last day of work on December 23rd, I went down to Long Point area, with a few friends, to see the celebrity bird that was found on the Christmas Bird Count a couple of weeks ago.  We quickly found the Smith's Longspur hanging out with a group of Snow Buntings and a few Lapland Longspurs.  The Smith's Longspur is a very rare bird for Ontario and a "lifer" for me.  I snapped a few shots of this obliging bird.
