Another Sparrow

chipping sparrow

Friends, this chipping sparrow ( i think) also comes to you from Hawk Ridge.  The migration of the passerines is also monitored from Hawk Ridge  The smaller birds are counted and some are banded as they pass through and get some seed at the feeders. This bird was busy munching on sunflower seeds as I crept close enough for a portrait. I love their tiny feathers around the face.  til Tomorrow MJchipping sparrow detail
