Banded

This little Chipping Sparrow was poking around on the ground below a bird feeder so there is a lot of spilled food around. I noticed that he was banded which really made me wonder where he had been traveling and where he had been caught and released. Cute isn't he?

That is interesting. I too wonder what the story is behind this little guy. He is a cute one.

Hello,

They are sweet birds. I was watching a couple of Chipping Sparrows just this morning on my deck. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day, have a happy weekend.

Great shot of this little sparrow. Always happy to see any sparrow that is not an English sparrow.

Her certainly IS cute. I can't remember seeing a banded bird in the wild.

They are long-distance migrants, though some stay in the southern USA all year - Great photo!
