NESP & HESP - 24 Sep. 09

Ashley and I finally stirred up our first NELSON'S SPARROW of the fall this morning at Errington Marsh:

However, even more uncommon at this time of year was this HENSLOW'S SPARROW:

We also flushed 6 Soras. No Yellow Rails yet....

We also stopped by Saylorville and had:

1 Black Tern
1 Forster's Tern
1000+ Blue-winged Teal
1 Franklin's Gull (instead of 300+ we had there last night)
3 American Golden-Plovers
