I am still missing my birds. They are still shunning me. They seemed to like the peanuts. Maybe it’s time to bring it back.
Chestnut-back Chickadees are are our local chickadees. They are very sweet, brazen birds. They love to hang out while I’m gardening and chirp in irritation when we go in and out of the door. And, yet, they are staying away in droves.
Chestnut-backed Chickadees are the smallest Chickadee. They don’t have a whistled song but they do have a lovely scratchy “chick-a-dee-dee-dee” song. Their most notable feature is their pretty brown backs, which is, of course, where they got their name.
