Ok, now that I have this blog I have to come up with something to write about. Perhaps a theme once in a while? What do you think?
We have a baker’s rack just outside our slider door on the deck. I decorated it with birdhouses–you know the type, the cutsie ones from places like Joanne’s. Not really meant to be homes to birds. But what do you know, a little Chickadee decided one of the birdhouses looked pretty comfy so in it moved. The problem is that every time we get close to the door the little thing gets frightened and flies off. So, are we going to be able to go out on the deck? My hubby finally got a picture. Isn’t he cute?
So, that brings me to my theme: Chickadees! First a little something about the bird. Cornell Lab of Ornithology has a cool online guide for bird identification and information: ID tips, photos, maps, sounds, habitat, behavior, more. I have a particular place in my heart for this little bird. It was a comfort to me to see a familiar “face” when we moved from the Northeast to the Northwest. It has a cheerful song , too.
After reading about the Chickadee, I think the birds are storing food in the birdhouse rather than using it for nesting. That is a relief, we don’t have to worry about disturbing nestlings! You can go here if you would like to know more.
