Chipping Sparrow, Katy
Another November migrant stops by the garden for a free meal. I hope the squirrels have left him a few morcels on the ground as he dosn't seem inclined to use the feeder.
In December through January (at least) a small flock of 5 - 10 Chipping Sparrows have joined the backyard flock of White-Throated Sparrows. Unlike the White-Throated, these little birds are unafraid to get off the ground and compete for goodies at the feeders.
Another winter visitor we very much enjoy hosting.
