Chickadee And Rose Hips By Robert Bateman

Chickadee And Rose Hips by Robert Bateman

"If bird lovers had to pick a favorite garden bird, surely the chickadee would be high on the list. Although not spectacular, they seem to be lively balls of joy, especially around a winter bird feeder. Friendliness is a word that seems to apply. I remember one winter's day when I was a boy watching with astonishment a man standing in a park holding out his hand with one sunflower seed at a time and chickadees coming to pluck them from his fingers. When I returned home, I tried it on our back porch with a bit of fruit cake. I saw a chickadee in a nearby bush. I made a squeaking sound, and instantly I was delighted to feel the delicate cool feet on my fingers and the little beak snatching my offering.

Those were black-capped chickadees which live all across North America from the Appalachians to Alaska. In our western back yard they are replaced by the chestnut-backed chickadee. As far as I can tell, they are close cousins except for the color. Of course, rose-hips are found everywhere across North America as well, so you might very well be rewarded with this combination. ~ Robert Bateman
