Seaside Sparrows

In a little park on the Hudson River Greenway, Clinton Cov, there have been a group of Seaside Sparrows for the last few days.  This species is usually very hard to find in salt marshes, so having these birds hanging out on a lawn and median between a sidewalk and a bike path, has been a great joy for birders used to spending hours to see a brief glimpse.

There being easy to find has had its drawbacks however.  One of the sparrows became a meal for an American Kestrel on Friday.
