Rare Sparrow at Crestwood (Better Pic)

Fred Weber found a rare Nelson's Sparrow (thought to be the interior subspecies) at Crestwood Lake.  Very hard to see along the phrag edges, and even harder to photograph. I would not have known what I was looking at without Fred. (A needle in a haystack. See pix below).)

Doug Morel later found the bird again.
