Description

I was standing in my yard yesterday when I noticed a chickadee hovering in branches on my neighbor’s crape myrtle tree. It perched on the tree stump. Then it suddenly disappeared into a cavity in the tree. I looked inside the hole to discover the bird sitting on a nest. When the bird left the nest to search for food, I peeked inside the hole and saw 4 hatchlings.

    Do you have any tips for attracting chickadees?

  2. I heard that you want tips for attracting chickadees.Go to the carolina & the black-capped chickadee nestplan on nestwatch,look at the range for yourself,I don’t think they live where you live,but maybe the carolina.
