Chipping Sparrow's Nest, 3½" (8.89 cm) wide by 2" (5.08 cm) tall.The Chipping Sparrow is a small native bird that is a member of the Sparrow family. It eats weed seeds and insects and typically lines its tiny nest with animal hair. Nestling Chipping Sparrows have an insistent (and constant) food begging call! Adults are fairly tame and tolerant of humans. They have been known to sing at night.

This nestling was brought to us when the nest was disturbed by a Crow. It thrived and was ultimately released back to the wild.
