Chickadee Winter Song
It's almost the end of winter here in the Adirondacks and the chickadees are going crazy on our feeder. They are the cutest, most vocal of birds - and they're not afraid of people. My husband swears that, when a squirrel toppled the feeder over, and he couldn't find the knob that would hold the top in place, a chickadee "told" him where it was! Actually, the chickadee was sitting on the flat hanger right next to the knob and kept cheeping, cheeping, at Bill, until Bill looked up and saw the knob. That chickadee wanted to eat and needed that knob back on the feeder.......well, that's the story and we're sticking to it!
This is my third try at the chickadee. I love the grosbeaks, too, but they just aren't as cute to me!
