Sparrows - 15 Oct. 09

I spent a misty, dreary morning working Harrier Marsh for sparrows. There were still plenty around:

Le Conte's Sparrow (25)
Nelson's Sparrow (4)
Vesper Sparrow (3)
Savannah Sparrow
Lincoln's Sparrow
Song Sparrow
Swamp Sparrow

Here are some photos of one of the NELSON'S SPARROWS:

Back at home, the creekside edge has been pretty active. We've had:

Orange-crowned Warbler
Magnolia Warbler (1)
Hermit Thrush
Eastern Phoebe
Fox, Lincoln's, White-throated, Song, and Chipping Sparrows
