With Our Chickadees

In the previous post got me reminiscing even more, I included one photo of a chickadee. Cuppa had made a string of popcorn and berries to attract the birds. Mostly though, they went crazy for the peanut butter which we smeared on the same tree. It got to the point where the chickadees would land on the jar almost as soon as I left the house with it. In short, we had an exhilarating time, and I'd like to show you some of the pictures that I posted then. There were even more, but I think these will suffice for now.

Those birds love peanut butter as much as I do! I think I will try sharing a jar with them. I love the shot of the nuthatch. My pair will come within 6 inches me but never come to my hand

Was it icky when you spread the peanut butter on your dome?

Pearl said...

so if a bird in the hand is worth 2 in a bush, how many in the bush is one on the head worth?

merry Christmas AC!

What an experience. I'm afraid I'd wet myself if I had a Chickadee on my head. That'd be too exciting. Yes, I am that old in my bones.

Beautiful photos. Beautiful experience.

That's so cool! I've had chickadees land on my hand for seed in really cold weather but never like that.I'll have to give that whole peanut butter thing a try.I like peanut butter anyway. My wife is always scolding me for eating it out of the jar.

Those are amazing - the Queen has been wanting a bird to land on her hand since she first saw Mary Poppins. She and the Mountain Man were out on the deck for about 30 minutes the other day waiting patiently. We have lots of chickadees and goldfinches. We'll try peanut butter next time!
