Some type of Sparrow?

Was out taking some photos at Ojibway Nature Centre, just can't seem to figure out what type of bird this is.

Yes, this is a Chipping Sparrow. They are the smallest members of the sparrow clan. They love to line their nest with hair. The male starts his morning chorus with a simple little trill. Both he and his mate use a chip call note in talking to each other. Enjoy.
