Three, possibly four sedge wrens are currently being seen/heard in the grasslands of Washington County. One was seen yesterday by Thom McLenahan and Scott Robinson and heard today by David Harrison from Mahaffy Road in Argyle, about half a mile east of County Route 42. This may be the same bird that Bruce Hoover recorded on July 7th from the nearby Alfred Z. Solomon viewing platform on County Route 42. Another was found this morning by David Harrison on Dowmont Road, just before the sharp curve that goes to the farmhouse. Another bird was found on New Swamp Road (town of Hudson Falls, I think) by Stacy Robinson, also this morning. This seems like a very good year for this species in Upstate NY.
