Over the past couple of weeks, the chickadee count at our backyard feeder has increased and their busyness and calls greet me most mornings. They are the first to the feeder after a refill, often barely able to contain themselves while waiting for me to move the requisite few steps away. They don’t seem to require this distance for our dog, who is often right under the feeder while they grab a seed and retreat to the nearby maple tree.
Postings on the local birding listserv mention that, at this time of year, chickadees will often help you find other birds. When you spot chickadees, search the nearby area and you are likely to find other species too.
