Life Bird #500!!!!!

Yesterday Jay and I managed to find a single NELSON'S (SHARP-TAILED) SPARROW at Allan Treman State Marine Park in Ithaca. This was my 500th North American life bird and my 50th life bird this year! We chased the bird back and forth across the field for a while; eventually we got some pretty decent looks and Jay managed to snap this pic. It was a real treat to hit this milestone in New York. My year list is currently 424.
