On my photo walk today, I photographed mostly chickadees. This was intentional because I was following up on yesterday’s blog about the nesting habits of chickadees. Today was just slightly warmer and a whole lot sunnier than yesterday, but when I stationed myself in the shade of a large tree with a good view of what is possibly a chickadee nesting hole, I discovered that it was not as warm as I had hoped. After 20-30 minutes of observation (and chickadee feeding), I was cold and stiff, but, unfortunately, no chickadees had entered or left through the hole in the tree trunk. Several landed on the edge, but didn’t go inside. It looks like I will be spending more time at my observation post on another day (or two or three).
A few additional observations:
That’s it for today from the northeast corner of Ohio. Thanks for visiting.
