This little Black Capped Chickadee was joyfully singing his traditional song Springs HereSprings Here…Listen to him HERE …second one down Hey-Sweetie

Sure hope spring is forthcoming here in our part of the world

When nesting is over and the young are on the wing, black capped chickadees form flocks of eight or a dozen birds, which roost and forage together until spring. Finding food in the winter, is often tough, and hunting for it in groups often is more successful…These birds are known to cuddle together to keep warm on a cold winter’s night…This warming activity is called “clumping” and actually works for our fine feathered friends. As bands of chickadees flits together among the trees and shrubs searching for insect eggs and pupae, they keep an eye on each other…When an individual discovers a tidbit, its fellows not only renew their search with enthusiasm, but concentrate on the particular niche where the discovery was found….In this way new food sources bulletins are continually disseminated throughout the flock

Info gleaned from The Readers Digest …Book of North American Birds
