This Chipping Sparrow is one of the birds we will be looking for on Wednesday’s Bird Walk here in Elkton. Mainly a summer resident in Douglas County, it is normally seen from April through September, and in fact I took this photo last Friday April 5. They are not as numerous or as well-known as the Song Sparrow or House Sparrow, but striking in appearance with an equally unusual song. I know my readership is far flung, but if by chance you are in close proximity consider yourself invited to attend. The walk starts at 10:00AM every Friday at the Tyson City Park in downtown Elkton.
