Chipping Sparrows

There are a flock of Chipping Sparrows here in the yards on a regular basis.  They come to the bird feeder daily along with the Brown-headed Cowbirds.  The Chipping Sparrows like to eat grass seed, and seeds from native weeds.  They are small brown and beige birds.  They hop around on the ground and usually are found in tall grass and around brush piles.  They are cute little guys!   The Chipping Sparrow looks a bit like the Song Sparrow, but it does not have a black bib mark on its chest.  I took these pictures in my yards on various dates in the first week of July, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
