New Bird!

I've got a new bird in my yard today!

A black capped chickadee!

I've always wanted a chickadee :)

The cool thing about chickadees is that they always look fluffy and bouncy and happy. And they hide seeds all over the place and can remember thousands of hiding places. I saw this guy hide stuff in the brush in my back yard - so hopefully he'll be back!

I have really got to clean my windows and remove my screens! I'm missing good bird shots!!

Hey, we just got our first Chickadee in our yard too! Hopefully yours came back - and ours too. Just found your blog and subscribed. Nice to see another Illinois blogging birder!

Hi Amy! I've got a grand total of 3 chickadees now! They have taken to the sunflower seeds, stashing them in various nooks and crannies in the brush along the pond in my back yard. They're so quick and fun to watch! :) And, I love!!!!! :)
