You know, every time I come to this blog, I have the overwhelming urge to say "Cute"!

Last one there lays a rotten egg!

Mildred said...

It's fun to imagine, isn't it? What a sweet picture.

Tina said...

That is just too cute! I love conversation between birds.

Bird Girl said...

Gee...I wonder who would win? I'm betting on the chickadee - but that little siskin will fight for a spot anyway! Such a darling picture of the two of them!

The Birdlady said...

..so cute!

Shelly: You didn't tell us who won, is that for tomorrow?

Mary said...

Very cute photo! Does the chickadee actually go to the sack?? Your sack looks so clean and mine look so grubby right now. Guess I should take them down and wash them, if the goldfinches ever get off of them long enough.

Oh cute..I have 4 thistle feeders and they are all busy. But I hate the way the seed blows all over..

Dorothy said...

Very cute! I've given our back porch to the birds for the winter! Messy, but I like to watch and photograph the birds.

Leedra said...

It is a standoff!

The chickadee will get there first, but the nasty little siskin will shove him off. Great photograph!

Jenny said...

Great photo Shelley. Looks to me like the Chickadee is saying to the Siskin 'you first'. (-: Nice manners that Chickadee.

Deborah Godin said...

Sweet! Great "portrait" of both of them!

Knatolee said...

This is so adorable! Love the caption.

Heather said...

I can just hear them each revving their little engines! What a cute picture.

Daisy said...

HA HA! Who won? :D

Vickie said...

Cute photo. This reminds me I have to get some thistle seeds for my as yet unused sack.

Shellmo said...

Thank you everyone for your comments! NC Mountain was right - the chickadee landed first and the siskin knocked him off in 2 seconds flat. (It was at this point my camera card was full!)

If these two were at my house, Shelley, the Siskin would call all of his friends and neighbors --and take over.

Hugs,
Betsy

It does look as if that is just what they are thinking!

I have thistle feeders in the yard and the birds just don't seem interested. Most everyone seems to like the black oilers and the price is finally coming down a bit.
