Nelson’s Sparrow at Kendal Frost Reserve

On Sunday, January 20, 2019, a Nelson’s Sparrow (perhaps two) was seen along the fence of the Kendal Frost reserve at the peak of high tide (just before 8:00 a.m. The orange on the face was clearly visible as the sparrow moved through the vegetation. I got a couple of poor photos, others present got much better. The sparrow was seen by Eric Kallen and Ross Christie before I arrived, Bruce Aird and Steve Sosensky were there as well. The tide tomorrow (Monday, January 21st) should be high enough for the Nelson’s to be visible again.
