No sound is sweeter…
Chipping Sparrows’ trill at dawn
Flawless perfection!

Did you know…
The trill of Chipping Sparrow is nearly twice as long as that of any other species, and this is a consistent and very useful clue. In addition, the overall quality of the sound is usually mechanical and rattling, due to the complexity of each individual phrase. – Source:  Sibley Guides
