Chipping Sparrow

Spizella passerina

Chipping Sparrows have a range that spans most of the North American continent in summer and Mexico in the winter, though the American southwest is also a favorite winter home. Their preferred habitat is wooded areas with grassy openings.

When not nesting these birds are often found in flocks. Normally they feed on the ground, but will fly out to catch insects when they can.
