The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. LeConte's Sparrow is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This bright-colored bird of grassy fields and marsh edges winters in the southeastern states north of Florida. It is a casual migrant in the northeast United States and California. This sparrow nests in Alberta, Manitoba and southeast Canada, and can also be found in northern Michigan.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
