All fluffed up and nowhere to go! by Bonnie T.  Barry

All fluffed up and nowhere to go! by 

I’ve been watching a little family of chickadees and am especially enchanted by the fledglings which are exploring all sorts of new things, the birdbath being one of them. They approached with reservations, but after a splash or two, they were convinced it was as good as the bark butter they love to nibble on. It’s especially sweet when they emerge from the water and fluff up and preen. Too cute!

  • Thank you, Renee. There is a little family of chickadees frequenting my feeders and bird baths, and the new fledglings are delightful to watch.

    Darling x a million. They must have just had a bath! SO SWEET!

  • Thank you, Kathy. Yes, they were bathing, ever so gingerly, as though they were a little anxious to get too wet. Then they fluffed up, shook a lot, and went for a second and third dip with more gusto than before.
