MA - Henslow's Sparrow - 06/27
Henslow's Sparrow Ammodramus henslowii. Singing from a Hay Field off Meadow Road in the town of Montague, Franklin County, MA. Although somewhat distant, the bird was visible for long periods during the 75 minutes that I was present with Matan along with two visiting birders (Ida Giriunas and Molly Taylor) from the Boston area. Found and reported by Mark Fairbrother earlier in the day. I can't remember seeing a report of a singing Henlsow's Sparrow on Massbird since I've been living in Massachusetts!
