LISP or VESP?


Lincoln's Sparrow

There have been numerous reports of Lincoln's Sparrows in the southern part of Wisconsin the past week or so, many coming to backyard bird feeders in the wintery weather. Though not all reports have included photographs, so far all the ones that have show Vesper Sparrows.

My FOY (April only) eBird LISPs for Pheasant Branch Conservancy:

If you think you have a Lincoln's Sparrow in your backyard, take a photograph of it, send it to me and I'll confirm it for you.
