The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Chestnut-collared Longspur is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This species winters in most southern states and Mexico. It is casual during migration and winter on the east coast, more common on the west coast. It nests in upland prairies of central Canada provinces, as well as in Montana and Wyoming.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
