I was the visiting birder from Boston, and I unfortunately I didn't bring
Longspur luck with me!

Kevin left before me, and I was the last remaining birder when I left at
4:15pm.

I didn't see the bird, but there were plenty of Savannah Sparrows sitting
in the grass, and the aforementioned (mostly young) cowbirds.

Good luck to anyone who goes tomorrow!
