I was taking down a nesting box to check its condition when I was surprised by a mother chickadee as she flew out the opening. I had no idea she had built a nest and that some of the eggs had already hatched! This is what I found when I looked inside—two newly-hatched chickadees and two pink and white speckled eggs that have yet to divulge their hidden treasures. What a lovely find on this beautiful April day! Brand new chickadees that will eventually emerge into the world to grace us with their lively twittering presence!
