Sparrows And A Funky Chickadee

With most of the leaves gone from the shrubs and trees many smaller birds that are often overlooked are easier to see.  For me, they can still be confusing to identify.  Especially the roughly ten species of sparrows found in Maryland.

In the first photo a white-crowned sparrow and a song sparrow share a perch on a board fence...


The next photo is of a white-throated sparrow...


A song sparrow scratches in leaf litter for seeds...


The final photo is of a chickadee with mohawk looking color pattern on the back of its head...



    If you ever notice that I misidentified a bird please let me know. 
 
             Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back soon.
