Scientific: Spizella passerina / Spizella pusilla
Norwegian: Brunissespurv / Markspurv

The Chipping Sparrow is seen in open woodlands and forests with grassy clearings and the Field Sparrow are found in tall grass and brush, especially thorny briars. You tell the difference between the two because the Field Sparrow has a white eye-ring. Both have fairly long-tails with bright rusty crowns. Chipping Sparrows build their nests low in a shrub or tree, Field Sparrows begin on the ground for first nest, and move higher for each new nest in a season. Both reside here in the summer.
