  • 127 species: Only Massachusetts birds!
  • Stan’s Notes: Naturalist tidbits and facts
  • Professional photos: Crisp, stunning images

This second edition includes new species, updated photographs and range maps, expanded information, and even more of Stan’s expert insights.

Stan’s Note: The Chipping Sparrow is often just called a Chippy, and builds a nest low in dense shrubs and almost always lines it with animal hair. The Chipping Sparrow is very comfortable with people, allowing you to approach closely before it flies away.
