Hello, Mr. Chip

Karl Riggle of Zanesville, Ohio, took this picture of a chipping sparrow.

Great picture, Karl, and it looks like a great feast from a sparrow’s perspective. Karl says this chipping sparrow stops by every morning to munch on seeds and is very tame.

I see chipping sparrows pretty much every year, but I have yet to see my first one this year.
