I just watched a chickadee on our deck, perched on a chair about 3 feet
from the sliding door I was standing behind, eat snow. It just kind of
looked at me, adorably munching on snow, the flew away. I have seen them
drink sap from our maples, but I haven’t seen them eat snow before. Is this
a common technique of getting water in birds?
