Yes. The American Tree Sparrow can be a bird you’ll find at a birdfeeder in Vermont in the winter—quite a distance from its breeding grounds in far North America. It is very similar to the Chipping Sparrow that we see in summer and fall. It sports a rusty cap and rusty (not black) eyeline on a gray head, a streaked brown back, and a smooth gray to buff breast in both male and female. American Tree Sparrows give an overall impression of reddish-brown and gray. A dark smudge in the center of the un-streaked breast is common.
Each year, Cornell's Lab of Ornithology promotes the Great Backyard Bird Count. This year's event is February 16-19, 2024. Join hundreds of community scientists across North America and count your birds. It's fun, it's free, it takes as little as 15 minutes—and it helps the birds!
Meet at the Welcome Center. Appropriate for birders of all skill levels, the walks run along forest and meadow trails and around the main house. For more information, contact email@example.com or call 802-367-7960
