Chipping Sparrow

This picture was taken this afternoon, May 2nd 2006. I was sitting out on our patio and this little guy was just dying to have me take his picture as you can tell by his pose. Normally they don't pose with their head so high. Sparrows are some of the hardest birds to tell apart and the Chipping Sparrow makes it even more difficult as they can change the feathers on their head and throat up to six times per year. The rest of the body feathers are only replaced once or twice per year.
