Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow@Secaucus H.S. Marsh

We went looking for the Seaside Sparrow at the Secaucus High School Marsh this morning and came away with fleeting looks at a Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow instead (above).

Also hanging out — plenty of Marsh Wrens and an Eastern Kingbird.

    Great question. They are considered a species of “special concern” when breeding and a”regional priority” the rest of the year. We think there may well be a breeding pair there.
