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.
