Nice birds y'all had.
However the Ammodramus sparrow looks like an immature Grasshopper Sparrow
to me. The breast streaks are too broad and smudged and not bold and crisp
like a LeConte's should be. The brighter, complete eye ring also matches
Grasshopper better as do other features like the bill that seems too stout
Access reminder: people want to visit Santee Delta WMA they have until
Tuesday - after that it is closed to the public until February 8.
