Chickadees Are Cold Weather Machines

The black-capped chickadee may be the most incredible of all winter survivors. We so enjoy watching them bath and hop around the bushes and trees that surround our windows.

Black-capped Chickadee
They are related to the titmice which are also a delight. Both like to choose a seed and then eat it on a branch elsewhere. It makes me think of true selfishness. They don't hog the feeder space, nor do they apparently worry about somebody else eating all the seed.

They are a picture of God's provision for me also. I will always be fed by my Father and I have no worry over His provision for me.

These little birds have evolved an unusual means of saving energy and coping with cold weather, so get the story of how a tiny bird is able to keep the elements at bay. Read the article and comments from others with chickadees in their backyards.
