Last updated: 12/17/2005. Various locations in Maryland.

Above and below: A Lapland Longspur on River Road in Montgomery Co., Maryland (12/17/2005). The two birds there today were my long-awaited first sightings in Maryland. Also present nearby were 100+ Horned Larks, 6 Purple Finches, several American Pipits (flew by), and a nice surprise - a Vesper Sparrow.

Howard Co., Maryland (12/14/2005). Shooting at dusk beside a red light was definitely a new challenge!
Many thanks to the hospitable homeowners.
