Lapland Longspur

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The Lapland Longspur is the most abundant passerine breeder on the North Slope of Alaska. This species is most commonly associated with the Arctic Coastal Plain, but also nests in alpine habitats in the interior Brooks Range. High nesting densities have been found throughout the Alaskan coastal plain (Custer and Pitelka 1977, Liebezeit et al. 2011) with nesting sites often in dry/moist tundra near tussocks and less frequently in wetter tundra habitats (Hussell and Montgomerie 2002). During the breeding season they typically forage in a wide range of habitats on a variety of invertebrates but also consume seeds and other vegetative matter (Hussell and Montgomerie 2002). Alaskan Lapland Longspurs are short-distance migrants and are believed to winter in temperate North America. Current North American population estimate is 40-50 million.
