Savannah "Ipswich" Sparrows

These are some of our earliest Spring Migrants, wintering on the US east coast and returning to Nova Scotia on their way to Sable Island, the only place where they breed. I found these birds on March 30 at Hemeon's Head but had seen some in the same area in the preceding week or two. Two different birds in these shots, the top photo being the first bird that I discovered on this day.
