Today the chipping sparrow that nests in the parking lot of where I work is back. He must have arrived last night as he was not here yesterday. It is so amazing to see this little bird return from such an amazing journy. It is a miracle that any of them survive.
With all of the changes that have occured in the last century from human over population, clear cutting and strip mining it is a wonder to me that any of these birds can find their way back to their breeding grounds. The risks from predators and man-made obstacles must be many fold higher than they were a few hundered years ago. Little chipping sparrow, you amaze me!
