continuing lapland longspur crown pt 2-8-21

The Lapland Longspur was MIA on our first pass at Crown Pt this morning, but then as Elizabeth Copper and I were searching Fiesta Is, Geoff Veith alerted us that it had finally made an appearance back at Crown Point.  (Thanks again, Geoff!)  Upon returning to Crown Pt, we had it calling as it flew over us from somewhere to the NE of the SE end of the NE parking lot (possibly coming from the knoll?), and then again calling as it flew to the SW over the lawn between the NE and middle parking lots and continued to the SW.  After we had made multiple passes searching the lawns, it landed in front of us to forage among pipits near the picnic tables just SE of the SE corner of the NE parking lot (about 50 yds south of the knoll).(Earlier we had had no luck with finding any rarities around the Vacation Isle model boat basin).Robert PattonSan Diego, CA
