From 3 PM to 3:30 PM on Saturday, March 16, 2013, I got very good looks at the previously reported pair of Nelson's Sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni) at Moonglow Dairy in Moss Landing, CA. The time was close to the high tide.
These two birds were together most of the time. They were mainly at the edge of the reeds, and when they did fly across the dyke to other locations, would usually come back to the reeds soon.
In spite of the wind and the less than ideal location of the sun, I managed to get some video showing the two birds side by side:
Do we know the genders of these two birds?
Is there any chance of them breeding at that location?
