The flock of 40-50 Horned Larks is still present and among them I picked out
two Lapland Longspurs this afternoon. Please see below for directions.

Today I found the lapland longspur amongst a flock of horned larks finding
food in the freshly manured field.  Enjoying the feast also were twenty rock
doves with interesting colour variations and Canada geese.

The field is on the east side of Courtice Road, north of Bloor Street (22)
and south of Hwy 2. The farmhouse to the north is number 2433  Courtice
Courtice Road intersects Hwy 401 east of Oshawa. Proceed north on Courtice.
