Summary: The Cape Sable sparrow (Ammospiza maritima mirabilis), subspecies of the Seaside Sparrow, restricted to extreme southern Florida, has elicited considerable interest and concern since its discovery in the early 1900's. Before being relegated to subspecific status, it was well known as the last bird species described from the United States (Howell, 1919; Stimson 1968.) It was widely believed to have been exterminated by a hurricane in September, 1935,but discoveries, apparent losses, and subsequent rediscoveries of the bird in various areas repeatedly brought it to public attention and aroused concern for its conservation.
