    Small huffy-tan wren, with a weak buffy super cilium. Short bill and relatively short tail.

    Spotted by my Dad as it crawled out onto a snow bank at the edge of a ditch. We initially thought it was a mouse or vole until we got it in our bins. Climbed up into the shrubbery where it was well-studied for about 45 sec, before it flew onto the S side of the road. We were able to get in touch with Dave and his friend. In the dark, we were able to call in a short-billed wren (presumably the Sedge we had 5-10 min before) several times but we unable to get unobstructed views.

  4. Number observed: 1

    Comments: The second wren observed chasing the Sedge on the S side of Dune Rd. Longer-billed and -tailed, with a bolder white super cilium

  5. Nelson's/Saltmarsh Sparrow (Sharp-tailed Sparrow)

    Number observed: 3

    Comments: seen and heard, but getting too dark to ID
