"Saltmarsh Sparrow"

Managed to get a few shots off before this Saltmarsh Sparrow realized that I was standing on the other side of the reeds that were in front of it.

Thanks Mark. Yes it popped up 10 or 12 feet away then took off to the middle of the marsh when it saw me.

They are around, here, but not in great quantities and seldom close enough for a decent shot or not in the open. The Seaside Sparrow is even more elusive. I think I've only ever managed 2 or 3 shots of one of those.
