Lincoln's Sparrow

I've been reading on OBOL that people have been seeing Lincoln's Sparrows so I was hoping I would run into one soon. Saturday I decided to visit Ridgefield National State Park for the second time. The first time I visited RNWR the Carty Unit was close for roadwork, so I visited this area first. Well, it wasn't too long on the trails that I had my first encounter with a Lincoln's Sparrow.
I ended up seeing four new life bird's at RNWR; Lincoln's Sparrow, Varied Thrush, Sandhill Crane (I actually have seen this migrating as a kid) and an American Bittern. The last two were seen on the Auto Tour at the S Unit.
