Backyard Chippers

Chipping Sparrows are the second most common birds in my back yard these days...
but I don't mind.  I enjoy their company and love their "trilling" calls.


Sometimes, it sounds as if there's a couple hundred of them in the trees around me. During early morning hours, they're everywhere- in the trees, the feeders and on the ground below the feeders. They compete with Pink Siskins (now the MOST common bird in my back yard) and often the siskins outnumber them at the feeders. The siskins are also little meanies and are willing to fight to maintain their feeder spot.  More about them later....

I hope your week has started off well.  After working the past two nights, I'm going to catch up on some zzzzzzzzzzzz's today.  Have a great day and thanks a bunch for dropping in :)

  3. Sparrows may be a common sight in your garden, but not in mine, and your photos of them are lovely.

  5. That's a great place for a feeder with all the foliage and berries so close. Hope you get some good rest!
