The Chipping Sparrow is one of the smallest sparrows with an unmarked breast, a white line above the eye and a black stripe that appears to go through the eye.
It nests in ornamental evergreen shrubs. The nest is a loosely woven open cup of rootlets, grasses, and other fine materials. It is usually placed in a small tree or shrub, usually a conifer. The nest has a cup shape and is made of loosely woven grasses, roots and other fine materials.
The Chipping Sparrow will come to most bird feeders. They are accustomed to foraging on the ground for their favorite foods of grasses, small seeds, fruits and insects. To attract sparrows, place a feeder filled with your favorite mix on a tray feeder close to the ground.
