An Inquisitive Visitor. With the pandemic upon us feeding the birds has brought more joy than it has in past times. This Chipping Sparrow is a recent arrival to Cortes Island. The white marking on the middle of its “forehead” is more prominent than usual. The photo was taken through our living room window. Chipping Sparrows are supposedly quite tame and will take food from your hand. This fellow came and sat on the windowsill which I was sitting right next to. Too bad my camera lens didn’t allow me to focus that close! Canada,Chipping Sparrow,Geotagged,Spizella passerina,Spring Click/tap to enlarge PromotedCountry intro

    1. Yes, this is another new one for me. Talking to other “birders” on the island it has also arrived a little earlier than usual. Posted 3 days ago
