So this is the first post of the complete overview of the birds I saw this spring, I decided to start off with sparrows and finches, because they are one of the first to arrive, juncos, Purple Finches, White-throated Sparrows, ect...
So here are the sparrows I saw this spring!
White-crowned Sparrows were quite common, but elusive to the camera, finally one day, while I was sitting still in a chair close to the bird feeder, I was able to get these amazing photos.
|White-crowned Sparrow, I love contrast between the bright grass and the bird|

I got some pictures of a Fox Sparrow that I really liked, this is through a window.
|"Nom nom nom, I love sunflowers"|

Clay-coloured Sparrows made of about 75% of the birds below our feeder at one point in the year, Chipping Sparrows and a few others made up the rest. I really like there buzzy songs, it reminds me of walking through fields or roads in the neighbourhood looking for birds on a humid day.

There aren't too many finches around our feeders, only Purple and Goldfinches.
