Backyard Wildlife – American Tree Sparrow

The American Tree Sparrow winters in southern and central Ontario, with much of its breeding ground spread across the Canadian Territories and Alaska (“American Tree Sparrow”, 2019).

Another ground feeder, the American Tree Sparrow can be easily mistaken for the Chipping Sparrow (to be featured later), but can be distinguished by the rust-coloured eye line.

While this particular sparrow most mostly interested in the seeds under the bird feeder, another sparrow that morning was in the mood for something juicier.

    He has a good camouflage! He blends in well with the grasses.
