Yea! A Chickadee happening

Right after Easter dinner I looked out and saw
this little chickadee checking out my nesting box.

Of course I grabbed the camera and started taking
pictures... forgetting I had a houseful of guests. haha

My children already call me crazy 'bird lady' so they
didn't get too excited.

I put up this box last year and had no takers.... The House
wren put sticks in it and then moved on...

Then I noticed something peculiar

I think he was taking out nesting material
not putting it in!

I was nonetheless thrilled that he might choose
this box for his nest.

After the Carolina Wren disappointment I needed a
new bird to watch....why not a cute little Chickadee?

I hope you stay little fella...bring your wife!!

I'll keep you posted..

Oh I hope that cute little thing decides to stay! And isn't funny how they KNOW what they want and how they want it? I watched two starlings take every single bit of nesting material OUT of my kestrel box and as soon as they emptied it - they put a branch there to show they chose it (fat chance ;-) Hubby threw them out and they did it a second time! And those wrens - they fill up ever box with sticks...I would be so happy to see chickadee babies! The house is so cute and it would be fun to watch!

He might stay and think of all the picture opportunities that will bring.

I love having chickadees as my birdhouse residents..they are so energetic and so sweet to watch.
Hope he makes a nice big nest and you have lots of chickadee babies to photograph for us!!

This bird house is so cute - I hope the chickadees do use it! Maybe they want to put in their own personalized nesting material!
