Chippies and Junco

Chipping Sparrows have returned in a big way the past few days. Today there were several in the yard, and many were singing. Dark-eyed Juncos have also been singing and acting very aggressively towards each other.

There are only a few weeks each year when these two species might occupy the same photograph.

At least that is the case in Central Jersey. In the DC area, some Chipping Sparrows will stay all winter.
