Mostly seen at Pea Island Refuge and area in the winter, as we have spring warmth Nelson’s Sparrows (Ammospiza nelsoni)¬†will head north to their breeding grounds. When they are here in the area they are difficult to find because they spend a great deal of time in heavy marsh grass close to the ground.
