I have my guides handy--on the bookshelf--but I rarely look any more. Not sure why. Maybe I had more time to watch and search for IDs when I was younger...or maybe now, unless I see something out of the ordinary, I feel I know what I'm seeing...but, I'd better double check what I've been calling a chipping sparrow.

To me and my guide book, the first looks like a Tree Sparrow, it has the two toned bill and dark legs. The second looks like a Chipping Sparrow with the black bill and white eye stripe. I'm guessing the second was not taken in winter.

Looks like we posted at the same time. I used to think I had tree sparrows nesting on my property until I realized they nest in the borreal forest and they were actually chipping sparrows nesting at my place. hard to tell them apart without knowing the little details to look for.

Thanks, recurve. I took them to be the same species...until this thread got me wondering.

That makes me feel a bit better.
