LAPLAND LONGSPURS were observed in Spokane Co WA by Jim Acton and others
last week. The birds were visiting small puddles along the road caused by
the irrigation systems. The birds were along Ladd Road between Hallett and
Thorpe, about 3 miles south of US 2 and about 2 miles east of the county
line. See WA DeLorme 88, D-2.
