As luck would have it, I was up at Riffe Lake in Lewis Co today, hoping for just that thing - alas, no luck in the couple of hours I spent at the east end of Riffe Lake and the hour I spent at the west end. Still plenty of American Pipits around, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if a longspur was lurking somewhere up there. But no luck today.
As a good consolation prize, in the channel on the west end, a Long-billed Dowitcher and a Pectoral Sandpiper were hanging out allowing great views.

Like the east end of Riffe Lake in Lewis Co. has good habitat. Anyone birding any of these 4 counties and sees or hears a Lapland Longspur please let me know.
