Um... Clare? Its a striking..... ? Sparrow?

UPDATE: For those of you who haven't read the comments - this is a Lapland Larkspur according to the ever awesome Clare of The House and other Musings. For arctic or general bird enthusiasts - you will also find a wonderful selection of bird photos.

You called?

It is a Lapland Longspur (Calcarius lapponicus). A beautiful male in all his finery. Check out their flight display as they fly up and then sail down singing.
