It really doesn't take much to make me happy and excited these days.
While putting out my Springtime/Easter decor in the dining room this
morning, I saw them flitting back and forth out of the corner of my eye.
Grabbed the camera and started shooting through the window.
Are they the very same pair of Carolina chickadees from last year,
maybe even the year before, building again in the tiny decorative
HOME SWEET HOME box? Or perhaps it's an offspring
who has brought a mate back here to its birthplace to start a
new family. How will we ever know?
The mysteries of Nature are many and some we never get an answer to.
I do know these very tiny birds are awesome, and their amazing
housekeeping and nest building skills using just a tiny beak, and those
two big feet, bring me joy just from watching them work so hard on the
front porch now that Spring is almost here.
Last year I was privy to the fledging of four tiny babies from this same nest
box HERE on April 27. Not sure I'll be fortunate enough to see a repeat
performance this year!
Good luck little Carolina chickadees.
I hope all goes well and you raise a sweet family here.
