This morning I went to Mac and Susan McWhirter's farm in Warren county, hoping 
to find the continuing Nelson's Sparrows.  We lucked out and had great views of 
2 Nelson's in one bush.  This one particular bush also produced 2 Marsh Wrens 
and one Sedge Wren, plus Swamp and Savannah Sparrows.  We also had one American 
Pipit fly over.

One of the Nelson's was way more cooperative than I expected and provided 
fantastic views at about 10-12 ft, but also showed a couple times for a nice 
photo opp.  I posted a few photos in a gallery here:

Great birding!
