While banding sparrows at Barn Island this morning, Sue Meiman, Alyssa Borowske and I captured a Nelson's along with the usual saltmarsh and seaside.  Nelson's seem quite rare in CT in spring, but they are a relatively late migrant so it is still worth scrutinizing any sharp-taileds that you see well. I will post some pictures of the two species side-by-side once I get a chance.
