Mountain Chickadee
Mountain Chickadee. We haven’t had a Mountain in our yard in a while. We are at 5,000 feet elevation; they like the higher elevations. Nice to see!

It can be fun walking around in your own yard!

Poetry:~Chick-a-Dee, Dee, Dee~

Chick-a-Dee, 

Dee, Dee she calls,

With steady precision,

 Glides in swiftly, 

Picks a treat,

Working hard.

~

With her treasure, 

Flies to a branch, 

Seed held tight, 

She hammers away,

Until she succeeds,

Devouring her meal.

~

Chick-a-Dee, 

Dee, Dee she calls,

Back and forth, 

Back and forth,

She repeats her need,

Working hard.

While drinking a cup of coffee this morning, from the comfort of our living room, we watched a little Chickadee consume her breakfast. 

 

She worked hard trying to nourish herself. She was dealing with cloudy skies, cold temperatures and breezy winds.
