Swamp sparrow?

Recommended Posts

saw this little fella in southern Maine yesterday and my thoughts were on swamp sparrow because it was staying near to the ground and under cover, but it seems very early for them and was not near a body of water.

Also see ME occurrence graph

This is for the entire state of Maine, so you can expect frequency in early April to be higher in southern Maine. As example, here's the same graph, but for York and Cumberland counties. As you can see, frequency in the first week of April is twice that of the statewide value and right around the 1% value that I use as a guideline distinguishing between rare and not rare. Finally, this has been a crazy spring, with many species being found farther north than typical for the time of year.
