With all the talk of warblers lately it’s easy to overlook the other birds visiting us this time of year. One such non-warbler that has been around in large numbers is the Chipping Sparrow. It’s a handsome, small sparrow and nests throughout New England. It will visit feeders to eat seeds. I’ve had at least four visiting regularly over the last week or so.
The above photo shows a Chipping Sparrow visiting one of the platform birdfeeders I made in the backyard.
Enjoy the spring migration and let me know what you’re seeing out there.
