Swamp Sparrow Migration

Summer Range: Swamp Sparrows breed from eastern Yukon and British Columbia eastward to Labrador, and southward to eastern Nebraska to coastal Maryland. Migration peaks in April, with males arriving before females and often occupying the same territories used in previous years.

Winter Range: These birds spend winters from southern New England to Florida, and from the southern Great Lakes region through Texas into much of the Mexican interior. Some birds may winter in southern portions of the breeding range, especially during mild winters.
