Chipping sparrows there started singing at dawn and kept on until the sun set.

I saw dozens of them.

This one was gathering material for a nest.

The chipping sparrow, Spizella passerina, is easily identified by its red cap, gray face, black stripe through the eye, and white eyebrow and throat. Click on the photos to enlarge.
