Our little cuties!

We have loads of ckickadees at the thistle feeder by the backyard deck. They also clamor for the wild bird seed feeder. They flit all over the place. They also vie for a spot on the rim of the ant cup, which we fill with water, that we put above our hummingbird feeder. Occasionally they go to the regular bird bath but the ant cup is their choice for a drink. It is truly a spa for them. Unfortunately I haven't taken photos due to their flitting all around and also I get a bit mesmerized by their actions.

hi, thanks for sharing. i saw black capped chickadees when i visited my grandfather in aspen one year in dec. they had a roaster outside with suet and bird seed. they are quite active and cute, here in so cal we have a bird called a bushtit, which comes in flocks and are pudgy and very acrobatic, even hanging upside down. very fun!
