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

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: Edited 3/12/19

    Originally thought Nelson's Sparrow (mostly based on location), but on reviewing recent evidence that atlantic Nelson's x Saltmarsh Sparrows can occur inland, it seems plausible that this could be a hybrid. Notes: obvious sharp-tailed sparrow (short wings, buffy orange wash throughout breast and face), with blurry streaking on breast. Breast is a bright orange, but perhaps not as vibrant as most interior birds. Additionally bill seemed large in the field and attached photos, and head shape seemed somewhat elongated (not "cute" like some interior Nelson's), which may hint at some Saltmarsh Sparrow genetic influence (although the latter could be confounded by some wet feathers on the bird's nape)

    Original entry:

    "*Rare, first county eBird record. Popped up from flooded field (2nd largest field heading north on west
    side of lake). Short-winged sparrow with yellow-buff wash over face and upper breast, with blurry and limited upper breast streaking. Presumably of the alterus population but opinions welcomed. Photos"
