For some reason entirely obscure to me, I notice Chipping Sparrows more in the spring that any other time.  They are not absent at other times of the year, nor are they more active now, nor more numerous.  Yet there they are, seemingly everywhere I look.  This works out well enough.  Chippies are a delight to watch.  They move about with great energy and purpose, snatching edibles and moving on.  And such small birds!  They seem nearly dwarfed by the grass in the lawn.  Soon I expect to see youngsters show up and add to the entertainment value.  Look around your open spaces.  See any chippies?
