I had a sweet little chipping sparrow on my deck this week. He is a common yard bird but I was glad to snap a few pics of him. Love the rusty crown.
The chipping sparrow is a small gray brown sparrow with a clear gray chest, rusty crown, white eyebrows with a black eye line and two faint wing bars. The rusty crown make him easy to identify.
I got a quick shot of a Downy Woodpecker taking off from a branch. I enjoy getting pics of the birds in flight around my feeders.
The goldfinches are becoming more striking by the day at the feeders.
We saw a couple Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at the feeders last Saturday then another this Friday. So happy to see them begin to return.
It is the smallest bird in the state of Kentucky.
Thanks for stopping by for another week at the feeders and in the trees - Judy.
