Chickadee Energy

December 13, 2012
A reliable visitor to the feeder.

The Black-capped Chickadee is a reliable visitor to the feeder.

I love having a bird feeder outside my office window. Chickadee energy is a great platform for launching the day and for jump starting any stalled thought processes! I grew sunflowers in the garden this year and the chickadees worked diligently all fall making sure that none of the seeds went to waste. Chickadees are small, vibrant bolts of life surviving in world of snow, cold and wind. Pretty inspirational, really. I included photos of the three species of chickadees that come to my feeder. The Mountain Chickadees have shown up at my feeder for the first time this year. The Chestnut-backed and Black-capped Chickadees are return visitors.

I know the beaver is a great symbol of Canadian industry and determination but wouldn’t it be great to have a chickadee as our national symbol? Or at least on a hockey jersey!

I have had Mountain Chickadees at the feeder for the first time in three years.
