Chipping Sparrow

Chipping Sparrow

As May comes to an end  . . . we wanted to way, with the weather so lousy, the feeders have been very busy.  The feeder bird cam took over 8 GB of photographs over the last 3 days . . . including this shot of a Northern Cardinal at dusk:

A nice returning visitor (after a few week’s absence) is the Chipping Sparrow.  I love their little red cap.

Long before I was a birder, I spent lots of time in the woods . . . sometimes running and sometimes hiking . . . but always exploring.  In those days I was aware of trill song eminating from the forest.  I always thought this omnipresent sound was an insect but now know it was Chipping Sparrows.  A bird that is always heard but rarely seen.
