A common bird and a common plant.
A crisp, pretty sparrow whose bright rufous cap both provides a splash of color and makes adults fairly easy to identify.
The nest of the Chipping Sparrow is of such flimsy construction that light can be seen through it. It probably provides little insulation for the eggs and young.
The oldest known Chipping Sparrow was 11 years, 10 months old.
