I love chickadees. They’re so cute and small and pudgy. Blue Bear has a bird feeder. Whenever chickadees come by, they fly onto the perch very briefly and rush to take seed(s). They then return shortly after for a second helping. Larger birds like sparrows or cardinals have no problem staying on the perch and eating the seeds there. I find the chickadees’ bird-feeding behaviour to be absolutely adorable. They’re also a very noisy but super cute set of chirping birds. It’s always a pleasure to know that some chickadees are around!

A note from Penguin: You should definitely check that awesome bird site out. It’s one of my favorites.
