Nesting saltmarsh sparrows

“We have saltmarsh sparrows nesting in remnant high marsh adjacent to the 30 acres where we’re raising the elevation of the marsh,” says White. “The sparrows also nest on Sedge Island and in other areas within Chafee NWR. In some of those areas we use runnels to help drain off standing water.” Credit: Steve Droter.
