Chipping Sparrow, Spizella passerina
Our backyard has been blessed during the latter part of June and on into July with several Chipping Sparrows feeding their young. The garden provides lots of cover, water and abundant food and we are seldom without several of these delightful birds to entertain us. They are quite confiding and will come right up to our feet as we sit on the patio. The pictures show a juvenile, and an adult with a juvenile on the mulch.
