New Nesting Records of the Le Conte's Sparrow, Ammospiza leconteii, from Northeastern Ontario, with Some Notes on Nesting Behaviour

Michael Patrikeev


Le Conte’s Sparrow is sparsely distributed through northeastern Ontario with no confirmed records from Algoma District and eastern Lake Superior. Two nests were found in open poor fen between Wawa and Hawk Junction in central Algoma District in 1999. Notes on behaviour, nests, nestling development and feeding effort were taken during 9 hours and 38 minutes at one nest over three days.
