Early December in Maryland. Last updated: 12/3/2011.

An Audubon's Warbler in Bayside Campground, Assateague Island, Maryland (12/3/2011). The western form of Yellow-rumped Warbler is very rare in Maryland and we only have a handful of accepted records. Dan Small and I found this bird in the island of scrubby habitat between A13 and A23. Photo by Bill Hubick.

Below: A continuing Lark Sparrow on Assateague Island, Maryland (12/3/2011). When Dan spotted it perched up, I slowly positioned myself in better morning light. The bird then surprised me by flying halfway to me, then running another five feet or so toward me. We spent 30 minutes just watching it feed about 10' away, never flushing it even when we slowly departed. Found by Rob Ostrowski. (Thanks, Rob!)
