Per your request, I wanted to write to recount our (mine and Simon's) encounter with a small flock of three Vesper Sparrows.  On Monday evening at around 5:30 P.M., we were walking North in Long Meadow, and had made it to the northern most plot (just about 50 yards from the tunnel leaving the meadow), when we saw three birds - white eye rings, white on tails when they flew - which we confidently identified as Vesper Sparrows.  They were quite tame, allowing good, long looks.
