Subject: [obol] One Feisty Chickadee
That Sharp-shinned Hawk is at it again.  Same time, same station. 
He/she seems to think it can catch one of our Mountain Chickadees.  It
is like watching a dance with the Sharpie diving in and bouncing from
limb to limb behind the Chickadee, always BEHIND the Chickadee. I'm not
sure just how many "dee-dee's" it takes to make a four-letter word but
it can't be too many.  At any rate the Chickadee really seems to be
goading the Sharpie 'Catch me if you can'.  Of course it is too dark to
photo the Sharpie in flight but it sure affords great portrait shots of
the juvi sitting with a flustered expression on its face.  "How can I
CATCH that little beggar?"
