Milly’s Bird of the Day: The Chipping Sparrow

Happy birding and please help Milly and her Bird-a-Thon team by visiting her fundraising page here.

Like Warblers, there are a lot of species of Sparrows who call Massachusetts home.

Sparrows are beautiful and charismatic, but some species can be very difficult to differentiate from one another. Milly is quite fond of Chipping Sparrows because they love the Museum of American Bird Art, and she can easily tell them apart from other Sparrows.

Chipping Sparrows are known for their pulsing 1 note trilling song and the rufous crown on top of the male’s head. Keep a look this spring and summer, from backyards to woods these little energetic sparrows are widespread across our state.
