Late March, Saltmarsh and Seaside Sparrows. (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I was hoping to search for both Saltmarsh and Seaside Sparrows in late March. I will be based in Fredericksburg, VA - so i am trying to determine my best bet to observe both these species within the shortest drive possible. Sites in Maryland appear to be my best bet based on a quick scan of ebird and plotting these locations in google maps.

Just thought i would ask if anyone has thoughts on these locations, or has another to suggest which perhaps hasn't been reported on ebird as yet.
