I'll take my food to go please!

chick to go

*I had just finished making some pinecone bird feeders so I thought I'd set out the leftovers for the birds. This chickadee was so cute - can you see him laying on his belly to eat the seeds?

What an adorable picture. One of the reasons why I love chickadees so much is because they are so resourceful. So cute!

Been waiting all day for my "birdie fix"...
As always, thank you so much for making my day!

Hi Shelley---I notice that most all of our birds LOVE that plate feeder--as much as any of the others. I think they enjoy spreading out all over the plate... ha... Cute picture!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

You are not going to believe this. I just bought a new SanDisk CF card and when I opened the box there is a disk included for recovery. It is just for memory card recovery, but I still think it is great that it is included. As you can tell, made me think of you.
