Yes and close enough so that the focus on it isn't too far off. If you spot a flock of buntings check for brown birds. They will be either longspurs of Horned Larks. Longspur is slighly small than the buntings and in flight appears as a brown bird. The lark is a bit larger and tail is longer. The light underside tends to show more in the lark.
