Chipping Sparrow

Just a couple of Chipping Sparrow pictures from Friday morning as a comparison to the previous sparrow pictures. Fall Chipping Sparrows are identified by their unstreaked gray breasts, and dark eye-line that extends through the eye-ring and all the way to the bill. I found these along the Singletree Trail in Boulder County on a beautiful, crisp fall morning.

No birding this past weekend though, a pancake breakfast and trips to the CU and Denver Broncos games ate up most of my time. Next weekend is going to have some dedicated field time though, with a possibility of heading up to the high country for some changing aspens.


  1. That's a pretty little bird, Dave! I have a fondness for sparrows.

  2. Cool and Helpful Sparrow Comparisons. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the feedback. I find I need all the help I can get on Sparrows, and hopefully the repetition will keep the fieldmarks fresh in my mind as well.
