Subject: [AK Birding] American Tree Sparrow
There was an eBird report of a American Tree Sparrow in the greater Soldotna/Kenai area. These birds are uncommon breeders on the Kenai Peninsula. They breed in sub-alpine shrub habitat. A mid-June observation of one in the Kenai lowlands would be exceptional, since these birds would normally be on their breeding territories - in the mountains. The eBird report provided no photos and sparse details, especially concerning identification. Is the bird coming to a feeder? Is it still persisting?


If more is know please do tell.
