Spring Bird Song Crash Course Day twelve – Chipping sparrow


This inconspicuous sparrow gives a continued, mechanical, even, insect-like trill. It literally “chips” and “chips” and “chips”. The duration of the chipping sparrow’s song can be variable but is often quite long. Confusion occurs when this sparrow slows it’s song down to a slower, flat series of notes.
