MARC has accepted two Chestnut-collared Longspur records, and three additional records have yet to be reviewed. Moreover, two records have been rejected. Intriguingly, the records span from early summer through winter, in line with the few but well-spaced out records for the east coast generally.

Three additional records have not yet been reviewed:

1 imm. fem. captured and banded at Nantucket, 10/12-16/1979 (Veit and Petersen 1993).

1 at North Beach, Chatham, Barnstable, 1/3-6/1975 (Veit and Petersen 1993).

1 specimen collected at Magnolia, Essex, 7/28/1876 (Townsend 1905).
