Florida’s Ammodramus Sparrows

There are six Ammodramus sparrows that occur in Florida, and now I have presentable photos of all of them. This may be my favorite group of birds in the world.

I know the Henslow’s Sparrow photo below is terrible, but I’m not complaining. I suspect I won’t get a better photo unless I see one up north in the summer. Full disclosure, though: my Photo was not taken in Florida; it’s from South Carolina.

But I have seen them here in FL too–just too far away for photos. Would someone please send a Baird’s Sparrow here please?
