Chipping Sparrows like open deciduous and mixed wood forests and woodlands, and are fairly common to common throughout Alberta where this habitat exists.

Chipping Sparrows migrate north into Alberta in May and south again between late August and early October, and at these times are often found in trees with other migrating sparrows and warblers. They are absent in winter. They breed in both rural and urban locations wherever suitable habitat occurs; in residential areas it is not unusual to find them nesting in trees or shrubbery quite close to houses.

Chipping Sparrows are insectivorous in summer. Later in the year they add seeds and small fruit to their diet, and are primarily seed-eaters on their wintering grounds in the southern United States and Mexico.
