Alaska Longspur - Calcarius lapponicus

A longspur is strictly a summer bird. It is only seen in the summer. Longspurs are seen starting to arrive in the spring and they can be seen up in the hills. The drake longspur likes singing, and it has a very nice sounding song.

The drake longspur has a black, brown and whitish head, a white chest and a yellow bill. The hen, on the other hand, has kind of brownish and white colored feathers.

The longspur spends the summers here and they lay eggs, and they have their young. When fall comes, they head back to where they came from.
