Subject: [birders] Re: Chickadees
I live in the middle of 65 acres of forest on a bend of a river in the UP.
My nearest neighbors are 1/2 mile away North and 4 miles to the south, so
not suburbia. I must have a hundred Chickadees as well as other lovely
little birds like Red-breasted Nuthatches, White-breasted Nuthatches,
Goldfinches, Purple finches, later will arrive Redpolls, Tree sparrows,
White-throated Sparrows, White Crowned Sparrows, and Juncos among other
little birds pass thru but there are far more Chickadees. I am wondering
what behaviors/factors contribute to their success.
