I love seeing the chickadees and titmice on the peanut feeders. :c) Heck, last night, my male bluebird was on my suet feeder! Maybe he was a woodpecker in another life?

Aren't they the sweetest birds in the bird world? How can you not love a Chickadee : )

Ours are on the Peanut feeder all the time too, like right now!

The Early Birder said...

Smart little chap. Well done Shelly.

Appalachian Lady said...

Great photo of the chickadee. We have the Carolina but they seem to look the same as your black-capped. Ours are usually the first ones at the feeder in the morning.

Tina said...

We can always rely on these beautiful little birds to show up at our feeders..and you always capture them so nicely!

How do you keep the squirrels from devouring all of the peanuts before the chickadees can get a bite? I haven't bought this kind of feeder because we have so many squirrels.
