At Wennerberg Park this morning I saw my first Chippinf Sparrow of the year.  he was in the willows along the river where there were numerous other sparrows, Orange-crowned Warbler and chickadees.  In my own garden there was a Chestnut-backed Chickadee, first this month, where we usually have Black-capped.  Meanwhile, it was bath time:ST-BATH1 ST-BATH2 ST-BATH3 ST-BATH4 ST-BATH5 ST-BATH6 ST-BATH8 ST-BATH9 ST-BATH10 ST-BATH11The Starling is an exuberant bather.  In a more secluded bird bath the White-crowned Sparrow is cautious in dealing with the water.
