Yikes! This is what comes from wanting to crow too soon! After returning
home and double-checking our notes against a guide (we didn't have a field
guide with us), we realized our two Ammodramus sparrows had distinctly gray
median crown stripes (not white) and no stripes on the solid gray nape.
This is only our second sighting of Nelson's in our 22 years at the farm.
