Lincoln’s Sparrow

Melospiza lincolnii

A very rare fall vagrant to the Pribilofs, this species has also been found once in the spring. All fall records, except a long late August record that is more of an outlier, have come from the second half of September when this species should most be expected. The spring record from mid-June is similar to many other spring passerine vagrants.
