The two birds were with the 12 Meadowlark species in grass about 5 inches in height. I first didn't see them but after the Meadowlarks flew up I noticed two other birds. They had a buffy look to them, light streaking on the breast, small beak as compared to other Longspurs. They stayed in one place as I stopped my car and got out. They still didn't fly away. Not until I got to within 15-20 feet did they take off. They then flew off and they were noticeably smaller, but had the white outer tail-feathers. As they flew I could pick up a faint rattling sound. This was just north of the northeast pond at Jack Sinn on Road 14.
