LeConte's Sparrow - Nash Farm - Henry County Georgia
Another view of this rarely seen Sparrow. I noticed the feather patterns and colors on the back are VERY similar to the Henslow's Sparrow which is also an Ammodramus Sparrow.
Here is a recent article about how rare and difficult to see the Leconte's is----
The # 1 field mark that NO OTHER Sparrow has are the gray and chestnut stripes on the nape of the neck. I posted this photo specifically so everyone could see these.
Enjoy this seldom seen rear view look at this wonderful bird!!!!
