Nelson's vs Saltmarsh Sparrows

Recommended Posts

by the range....would not expect this to be a Nelson. Also does not "appear" to have the grey median crown stripe of a Nelson (juvenile would not have the whitish belly that this bird has

But all that said.....will wait for someone one more expert in sparrows

Thanks for the reply...  specifically, this was at a place called Pleasure House Point where we get the both species each migration and some stay through the winter--of the two, the Nelson's is the more commonly found species.

No worries at all.  Right or wrong, I appreciate any and all thoughts on these birds!
