OH - Henslow's - up close
Perhaps the biggest surprise from "The Biggest Week in American Birding", this Henslow's Sparrow from the boardwalk at Magee Marsh. I don't have much experience with this grassland breeder but the presence of this migrant in damp woodland threw me off balance completely. Remarkably tolderant, it fed just feet off the boardwalk in front of hordes of admirers. Kudos to the finder whoever he/she was!
