Sawpit Boat Ramp, Big Talbot Island State Park, Duval Co.  At the terminus
of the ramp access on edge of creek, two Nelson's Sparrows perched in low
veg. Many visitors/birders to NE Florida request info on where to find marsh
sparrows. In this regard, the Sawpit ramp has proven to be a reliable
location during periods of high tide in the wintering period. Park in the
remote lots and hike down to the end of the access road. Do not be
inconsiderate and drive or park at the ramp end. Opposite the ramp and lots
is Spoonbill Pond with vanguard of waterfowl just arriving. In the same
region, another productive but hazardous sparrow location is along the
eastside of the A1A causeway crossing through the Simpson's Creek marsh
between Big and Little Talbot Islands. Park and hike the road shoulder with
due discretion.  Images of two sparrows at link below.
