Chipping Sparrow on Branch
A crisp, pretty sparrow whose bright rufous cap both provides a splash of color and makes adults fairly easy to identify. Chipping Sparrows are common across North America wherever trees are interspersed with grassy openings. This picture of this Chipping Sparrow was taken at the New York Botanical Gardens in the conifer area.
Their loud, trilling songs of the Chipping Sparrow are one of the most common sounds of spring woodlands and suburbs.
