BACKYARD SECRET: THE CHIPPING SPARROW SINGS INCESSANTLY DURING THE BREEDING SEASON

       The chipping sparrow is one of our most common backyard birds.  It is interesting to note, that during its breeding season, which begins in early April and peaks in May and June, it is also one of our most vocal breeding birds.

       Biologists have determined that during this special time of the year a male chipping sparrow sings its song approximately 330 times per hour throughout a day that begins well before daylight.

       Talk about stamina!
