Took a morning walk at Jesperson Dyke. I had four Lazuli Buntings, 3 males and one female. One was singing and was posing nicely for me. I have found Jesperon Dyke the most reliable spot for Lazuli in the region.
A Spotted Towhee was also singing nearby. Looks like it is molting?
Sure, if you start at the Jesperson/Carey Rd section and walk east there is a big tree on the right hand side(around 200m from the parking lot?) One of them was just after the tree. After that, there is a gate, not the one at the parking area, and two other males were about 100-200 metres from the gate. I find I hear them first then see them.
I hope that helps. If you have any other questions please let me know.
As Jon said you park right on the dyke and not where the red x is.
This photo might help. The first red x is just after the tall tree and on google it says 700m from where you park to the first red x. The tall tree is quite close to the dyke. The only one in the area on the right side that is close to the dyke.
The second red x is about 1.5km from the parking area. And likely about 200m from the second gate.

I was out there this morning and lots of Common Yellowthroats around making noise. I saw 2 male lazuli buntings and I heard another one in between the big trees on right and one just past the 2nd big tree.
