LeConte's and Nelson's Sparrows at Lake Tobesofkee
This mornings venture out to Lake Tobosofkee (Duck Ponds) was incredible. We, Joy Brown, Ivy, Trey McCuen, Jerry and Marie Amerson, and I observed a couple of Ammodramus sparrows. Neslon's!!! and LeConte's!!! Other sparrows of note include Swamp, Song, Savannah, Chipping, and Field Sparrows. Jerry got some amazing pictures of the sparrow. I was able to get some phone scoped images and video of the LESP. Try as we might we could never get the NESP to sit down long enough to get a great shot of the bird but it was very cooperative for those of you who want to chase.
