Fall is here with snow soon to follow. This little Chipping Sparrow found a spot out of the wind in my branch/brush pile. He looks like he is fat, but he just has his feathers puffed out to keep more warm air close to his body.
I live in northeast Iowa on an acreage. I grew up on a farm, and learned to love nature a great deal. I have worked as a veterinarian and currently work for a landscaper. The many experiences I have had in life have given me a “wide eye” when I look at the world around me.
