A Chipping Sparrow eats from a a bird feeder at Merganser Lake in Danbury, Conn., summer 2016.

When the nights first start to feel just a bit like the fall, I start filling the feeders again. This year that happened to fall on Labor Day Weekend. I hope everyone had a good holiday. The bad news is that summer is almost over. The good news is that fall is next. It’s a great season for birdwatching. (Aren’t they all, though?)

One of my first visitors to the feeders was this Chipping Sparrow. It’s a cute little sparrow and VERY common around my neighborhood. It’s always good to see the birds back at the feeders again.

One thought on “Feeders are back up

  1. Do chipping sparrows migrate in big flocks? I saw a flock of sparrows on the move yesterday on a lovely early evening at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Of course I don’t know what kind they were. I also saw three yellow “confusing fall warblers” there, all on some special plant they liked. And one butterfly I couldn’t identify. That’s unusual, since in city & even in NH I rarely see many butterflies, & always the usual suspects that I know well.
