At a glance I would strongly favor Nelson's over Saltmarsh as well. I'm not concerned about the timing since the changing weather patterns are throwing most conventional thinking on occurrence into flux. This bird looks wrong to me for Saltmarsh. Additional pics would be helpful but based on the posted image, I would approach them as needing to convince me it's a Saltmarsh and not a Nelson's.

Perhaps one of the inland races: nelsoni or alterus?  Which I find a tougher call than our usual, washed out subvirgatus.
