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.

  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.
