The Chipping Sparrows will be singing from the tops of the trees throughout the nesting season.

Isn't it wonderful! A little chilly today though. I think they were lured into New England on false pretenses. Especially the Tree Swallow I saw the other day!

Lots of camera critter/birds this week! Great shots. I spotted the chickadees digging out a nest out my window, and the cat was watching...

I especially like the last shot, Steve. The Sparrow is happy to be amongst the new buds on the tree. Nice spring photo!

I keep watching for our Chipping Sparrows, but they are still absent! Love the Cedar in the previous post...gorgeous with the sun glint in his eye!

Nice! great bird shots. I got mobbed by chestnut-backed chickadees today, it was kinda crazy and weird (but no photos, boo).

Wonderful to see yur little birds proclaiming the advent of the season. Sitting atop a budding tree, singing your sould out must be heaven after the long winter. Lovely shots.

Awesome shots of the birds, Steve! I have heard the fee-bee sound too. I wonder if the Carolina Chickadee says fee-bee too.
