BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE


THE HUMMINGBIRDS HAVE COME OUT IN FULL FORCE THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS. Prior to Wednesday, only an occasional male would visit my feeders. Now the action is nonstop! Aerial displays and high pitched bantering abounds. From my windows, groups of hummers are everywhere to behold. The other birds want to know what's up. The chickadee scolds,"chick-a-dee-dee-dee"!
