The chipping sparrows came back a few weeks ago when it first started to feel like fall. This guy let me get pretty close. He looks a bit different from the ones I shot last spring, but those were in their breeding plummage.

They left back in March about a week after I first started paying attention so I’ve been waiting to see when they would show back up. I’m glad they found us again.

I just wish I could white balance a little more consistently.
