Chickadees Are Here

Neither hide nor hair has been seen of our Dark-eyed Juncos. Besides the bullying Stellar's Jay who pops in early morning, we have had new visitors to the feeder the past several days: the tiny Black-capped Chickadees flit in and out, but...

... they do skedaddle when the Chestnut-backed Chickadee arrives.

In an attempt to welcome any Bluebird who would like to take up residence, we erected a new birdhouse. And who is already scouting it out? No way! There are plenty of other condos around the property.
