  1. I just love the chick-a-dee! We have some at our feeder too along with downy and hairy woodpeckers. Now and then I get a host of sparrows and I recall the scripture…. "Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father….therefore do not fear; you are of more value than many sparrows." ~Matt 10:29, 31Jody

  2. We have noticed that the birds are making an appearance at our feeder and I really need to get the bird ID book out. I do know that we have a lot of swallows and finches, but i am not sure of the specific kinds!

  3. Oh, cute bird.I don’t hang feeders right now because our cats would think of our feathered friends as dinner. But, I am a huge bird lover. I heard a new bird song yesterday, but I’ve yet to identify it. Soon (-:Happy Valentine’s Day,Diane

  4. What a beautiful picture! I haven’t seen many birds at all at our feeders lately. I think I need to clean them out and put in fresh seed. I so love watching them!I attended a bird seminar this past weekend. (I’ll post about it tomorrow-Friday. Stop by and check out all my notes!) I need to put into practice some things I learned.

  5. Lovella – I never noticed how chubby they are!They don’t look like they are wanting do they?Jill – it sounds as if you have the same type as visitors as we do – except cardinals – we have them but they are very rare.I’m sorry you don’t have chickadees Suzanne – their call is so cheery especially in the winter. Do you have them out west or is it that you just don’t have them at your home? Our cat isn’t any threat to the birds – he’s a lazy boy!Joanna – I’m wondering if you have a blog? I can’t follow your link.Britt-Arnhild – I’d love to see some pictures of your Norwegian birds.They would be happy in your Blue Garden!

    It’s pretty boring around here, all year round actually.We get almost all red house finches and goldfinches. SometimesI’ll see some sparrows or titmice, and a week ago there weredozens of robins hopping around the yard-alas, I haven’t seenthem since.We don’t have a large variety of birds up here in northern Ca.:(

  7. I looooove chickadee’s but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in real life. We don’t have any birds in our yard due to our cat but once in awhile blue jays and starlings try to come close. Of course, Robins in the spring.
