Swamp Sparrow

Posted on Oct 7, 2015

This Swamp Sparrow (Melospiza georgiana) was one of several that I enjoyed seeing this past Monday as the species moves through wet, grassy habitats on the way south. Autumn migration is in constant motion this week with a moderate flight nearly every night. You’ll end up seeing some of the same little faces every day with a few news ones sprinkled in. This upcoming Sunday looks like it may be a terrific day to be outside for us and for the birds. What could be better than walking outdoors and enjoying lovely little creatures like this one?
