An anecdote about the green driveway

Last night I saw something charming enough to post it on Facebook. I’m often confused about whether the birds are American Tree Sparrows or Chipping Sparrows, but the absence of the distinct call of the Tree Sparrow, with the presence of the distinct call of the Chipping in spring, persuades me which one it is.

This is good – all cities need native habitat and the birds and animals that use it.
