The social behaviors of Le Conte's (Ammodramus leconteii) and Nelson's Sharp-tailed (A. nelsoni) sparrows are poorly documented, as are their interactions with one another, even in the prairie marshes they share during the breeding season. We report the regular coincident presence and similar habitat associations of these species at a fall migration stopover, the Baker University Wetlands, near Lawrence, Kansas, over an 11-year period, and describe social behaviors (several previously unrecorded) at the site, including an aggressive interspecific encounter.
