No privacy for white-crowned sparrow on rare visit to Britain

Question: when does a sparrow excite more birdwatchers than an eagle would? Answer: when it’s a white-crowned sparrow from the United States, hopping around in Norfolk.
Hundreds of twitchers have been thronging the village of Cley Next The Sea to see the extremely rare visitor, which has only been seen three times in Britain before, and never in southern England.
Theories for its arrival include it being blown off course by gales, or hitching a ride on a ship. But whatever the reason, it appeared this week in the garden of Richard and Sue Bending, who moved their bird feeder into the road, with the sparrow following, so watchers could get a good view. And they have been doing so – in throngs.
This week’s featured bird is one that can make your day chipper when it appears at your feeders – the chipping sparrow is a lovely sparrow with colorful breeding markings, and even in its even more camouflaged winter garb, it is still an attractive and welcome bird. But how much do you know about these bright birds, and how can you invite them to your feeders? Here.
Nelson’s sparrow: here.
