We are grateful to Peter Pyle for writing the section on Molts and Plumages, to Vicens Vila-Coury for updating the distribution map, to Guy Kirwan and Paul Rodewald for editorial help on Systematics History, and to Aaron Hill for providing information on breeding and wintering Seaside Sparrows near Charleston, South Carolina, and for sending an interesting link to an interactive google map showing connectivity movements of some Seaside Sparrows tagged with GPS logger technology. We also thank Chris Hill for supplying additional information on sparrows in South Carolina and for providing a pdf of an article of his on the sparrows. We also are grateful and wish to thank Stefan Woltmann for wing chord and body mass information summarized here in a table for different populations of Seaside Sparrow, and to Andrew Kratter for providing information on specimens in the Florida Museum of Natural History collection from the Florida panhandle and supplying an important reference. Finally, we extend special gratitude to Brooke Keeney and her staff for their kind and encouraging support during the entire project.
