We never see chickadees near my house, but when I got out of my car after work today this little one was making a ruckus in the front yard tree. A few minutes later I saw why as one of the stray kitties that live in the abandoned house on the corner walked down my neighbor's driveway. Once it was a safe distance away the bird took off. Hope it won't be a stranger.
EDIT: It was back again today and keeping an eye on my son as he cleared the ice from the front steps. Must be nesting close by. Yay!
