Lincoln's Sparrow

Detailed Description

An annual count has been conducted at Patuxent Research Refuge every year since 1941, when the refuge consisted of only the Central and South Tracts. In the last few years, bird watchers have regularly observed Lincoln’s Sparrows during the Christmas Bird Count at Patuxent Research Refuge.
