CHIRP! CHIRP!


Where I live there aren't many birds around in the winter. I do not know if it's because they all flew south. Or if  it's because I do not put out suet and bird seed for them. I can hear the ones that are here, chattering. And that always makes me smile. But catching a glimpse of them is rare. So imagine my delight seeing this little fella out and about at the local supermarket. Made my day. Does anybody know what kind of bird it is?

It looks like a little sparrow to me. I always delight in the birds too. Their happy chatter cheers me up.

I dont know what kind it is, but I love birds and bird-watching too!

I like birds but don't know much about them. I agree with "Ma" - it does look like some kind of sparrow.

I love to watch the birds too.

I am not much on birds except Red, Blue and Robin, but that looks like the Sparrow... Birds bring out the best in freedom!

Not sure what it is, but it is cute! Glad you got to see it though; hopefully a sign of spring to come?

I love to feed the birds and do but I only know a few by name. I read a couple of blogs where the writers know a lot about birds.

He's definitely a sparrow, but which one I'm not quite sure. We have quite a variety at our feeders and I still have a hard time naming them without my bird book in hand.

We have all sorts of birds around here all year long, although after the cold winter we've had this year, I bet some of them are wishing they'd flown south!

I love your little bird, Taryterre. Not sure what kind of bird it is, but it sure is sweet. Sometimes they come around at the strangest times - when we need it the most. Bird watching is one of my favorite things to do.

I have been feeling awful lately with a bug, and your posts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you, dear.

Love,

It looks like a sparrow to me. We have bunches of them in summer. We don't feed them anymore. At onetime we even had a heated water element for them but we found it drew to many mice. With an old house they found to many areas where they got in.

I'm no bird expert, but what a sweet little bird. Keep warm and cozy!
