Subject: [cobirds] Chipping Sparrows breeding Arapahoe County
Hi all,
Our Centennial, Arapahoe Cty neighborhood now has a pair of breeding Chipping Sparrows.

Last summer I oddly kept hearing a Chipping Sparrow sing all through June. This year our first Chipping Sparrow arrived to our ash tree singing exuberantly and unceasingly while other ChSp spent their two weeks break here eating on the giant dandelion patch across the street. Eventually there was the expected migratory exodus, except for the singing bird who seemed to have settled in down the street a few houses. Today I watched an adult ChSp feeding a juvenile in plain view on the ground 12 feet away.
So, Chipping Sparrows join Bushtits and Mountain Chickadees as more recent breeders in our urban neighborhood. We live near Colorado Blvd and Mineral in Centennial.
