Chipping Sparrows

A couple of Chipping Sparrows have been hanging around the apartment for the past few days, which means that I have now officially learned a new sparrow! (For those of you keeping track, this increases my sparrow-knowledge capacity to four.)

These birds are on the small side, as far as sparrows go -- almost dainty, even. And look how handsome they are, with that red-brown cap over a white/black/gray face. This little bird landed in the tree outside our window a couple of days ago, and then proceeded to close its eyes and rest for a few minutes:

Sleep well, little Chipping Sparrow. :)
