Our orchard and barn are across the road from our house, and from my den, the barn is always in view. I can only see a small part of the orchard.
I fed my chickadees today. They are getting more tame. Only a few seconds passed before one little one was on my hand. Another decided he would have a better choice of seeds if he landed in the dish of seeds I was also holding.
Mr. Squirrel also visited the feeder earlier. I really can't begrudge him a few seeds. He looks so cute sitting in the feeder. He doesn't stay long. Yesterday I also had the doves, jays and even an american goldfinch and two evening grossbeak.
Having the chickadees landing on my hand brings me such a warm feeling. It puts a smile on my face. It's amazing how something so simple can make one feel so good inside.
