Featured Bird: Black-capped Chickadee. These cute little birds are very curious but are usually heard before they are seen. Black-capped chickadees can be found in any tree/brush/shrub location. They are easily attracted to feeding stations - use suet, sunflower, peanuts. They don’t mind using tiny hanging feeders that swing in the wind, and also readily visit window feeders. Have you heard a chickadee in your neighborhood lately? Find information and listen to all the sounds they make HERE.
