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. Since 2012, when I really started paying attention to the birds in  Little Burgundy (Montreal), this bird really is increasing in numbers. This is good – all cities need native habitat and the birds and animals that use it.
