Le Conte's Sparrow - November 24, 2012

Le Conte's Sparrow at Waterloo Nature Preserve, Chester County
 
This handsome and unexpected little bird was photographed at a private nature reserve in Chester County. Access to this location is NOT open to the public but permission can be obtained. It gave those of us searching for it on 24 November a very good game of hide and seek, before finally appearing after nearly two hours of searching.
