      All,

       

      The excellent photo at the link posted is actually a Grasshopper Sparrow, shown by the buffy face, complete and prominent eye ring, and the small black spot on the rear of the cheek (auriculars).  Bachman’s wouldn’t show the amount of buff in the face and cheeks like this bird as it would be grayer there, and the eye ring should not be as obvious.

      A quiet morning at Harns Marsh yielded the usual sightings: limpkin, snail kite, wilson's snipe, blue-winged teal, cattle egret, etc. One notable sighting, however, was Bachman's Sparrow. Photo posted:
