Carolina Chickadees

Little birds such as the Carolina Chickadees are still around in my yard in good numbers.  They are hanging out with the Tufted Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatches and the House Finches.  They are happy to have the bird seed at the feeder.  I think that although I have now been filling the feeder with inexpensive feed from a local discount store, the birds still appreciate the hand-out.  As the saying goes, “Beggars cannot be choosers”.  Ha!  I am saving a small amount of money and the birds are still happy   I took these pictures in my yard on October 19, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. i think as much seed as we go through for these little ones, if we can save a bit of money, then good for us!

    • Hi Theresa, Well said! Have a wonderful Monday tomorrow!

      • apparently wordpress is no longer notifying us when you post a reply to our comments. i used to get a little comment notification in the upper corner of my screen when i visited a wordpress blog, but for the past few days, nothing. i just came back to see if you were still replying (as you and a few others usually did). but i won’t get the notifications any more, apparently. so unless i look back at previous posts, i won’t know that you responded.

  2. We don’t have the Carolina ones here, just the black-capped, but they are my favorites. I think the ones here now are the ones who will stay for the winter. I was happy last week to see that the price of sunflower seeds here has come back down again too!

    • Hi Montucky, Don’t get me wrong, I am just saving a few bucks on the feed because I was going through the bag quite fast – greedy little birds and lots of ’em! Ha! Glad you have the Chckadees. Glad too, that they will stay all Winter. Have a fine coming week!

  3. Great shots of your cute chickadees. The bird seed has gone up in price, especially the sunflower seeds. I hope you are having a happy Sunday!

  4. Sweet little birds. We’re still waiting for Chickadees (We have Black-capped) to come to our yard and feeders, but I was pretty sure I heard one close by yesterday. I am not quite ready to call it a yard bird until I see one.
