[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's a photo of a very small bird,14 cm, the Chipping Sparrow. The breeding adult is identified by bright chestnut crown,broad white eyebrow, and black line from bill through eye to ear; note also grey nape and ear patch, grey unstreaked rump and two white wingbars. The tail is fairly long and sharply notched. Wide spread and common, this species is found on lawns, grassy fields, woodland edges. Song is a trill of dry chip notes, all on one pitch.

Voici la photo d'un tout petit passereau qui fait 14cm. Le Bruant familier est caractérisé par une calotte marron roux vif, un sourcil blanc voyant et par un bandeau noir long et mince; notez aussi la nuque et la joue grises, le croupion gris uni et les deux bandes alaires blanches. La queue est assez longue et encochée comme chez tous les bruants du genre Spizella.Répandu et commun, il habite les pinèdes, l'orée des bois et les jardins. Son chant est un trille rapide, sec et monocorde.
