Great picture of the Chipping Sparrow, see how it is mistaken for the 
America Tree Sparrow.  They do look allot alike. Little brown sparrow, rusty 
cap, wing bars.  The Chippy has  white stripe, superceilium, above eye where 
as Tree is gray and the black smudge on chest of Tree whereas Chippy is 
clear.   The Tree is a winter vistor from the north and the Chippy is a 
summer nestor.  Keep sending us those great finds.  Nancy
