The Lincoln’s sparrow breeds from Newfoundland and N. Quebec south to Maine, N. New York, N. Michigan and Minnesota. It is known to winter from N. Mississippi and S. Oklahoma south to the Gulf, and it appears on the Alabama State Bird List as it was presumed to occur here in winter, also. There is no specimen
for the State. Howell, in Birds of Alabama, states that he observed a Lincoln’s sparrow near Florence, May 4, 1912.
