The right men's sparrows

That's right. Plural. All hail Berrien (if not the Victors). Good thing I spent the second half of the Sparty game in a sparrow field we've been checking.

The evening light brought out some of the warm dark tones of Nelson's Sparrows, even if they're not quite as bright as they are in May.
I don't think this picture has been taken too many times in Michigan (I know Tim has done it before), two Nelson's in the same frame.

After a quiet morning at Tiscornia we walked another field that's been productive over the years, and had at least 3 LeConte's, much paler buffier birds.


We were surprised to have one of the LeConte's fly up into some of the brush as well as disappearing into denser grass in places as well.

As for the locations, we-ell, I'm not really at liberty to divulge... ...sorry.
