A reminder that if you find any COLOR-BANDED Ipswich Savannah Sparrows, please try to determine the color combinations on right and left legs and report them as part of your eBird report. There is a research program going on with Ipswich Sparrows banded on Sable Island and they would appreciate any data.

I just got confirmation that I had a Ipswich Savannah Sparrow on Sunday October 22 on Parker River NWR. There were 2 birds seen at the sub headquarters with other Savannah Sparrow. There is a photo posted in my ebird report for that day.
