Duplicate the layer your photo is on, equalize the top layer, select the bottom (original) layer, use heal/clone on the spots.

You can also do this in Camera Raw to remove the dust spots, it has a tool to remove the dust spots.

Pan the image around and the dust spots will be more visible. You can also increase the black setting to 100, this will make them very obvious.

Ditto, except I pretty much exclusively use Spot Healing tool. Hardly ever use Clone Stamp anymore.

I also tend to select just the sky before equalizing. That's the area where I'm generally concerned about dust spots, and selecting just the sky makes them stand out even more.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Sometimes small birds appear to be like spots. Cleaning the sensor won't help there!

I agree that small birds and other items in the actual outside environment require some post processing. However, the OP specifically refers to dust spots which are small/mid size fuzzy looking and hazy spots. My suggestion was meant to solve that problem at the source vs. treating the symptoms.
