I have the most charming new neighbor!
I don't know if the Chickadee family have had their babies yet, but there certainly is a lot of action going on at Chez Chick these days.
Several years ago, my cousin Patty and her husband Dave gave me a birdhouse they had created. Dave built it -- it's wonderfully sturdy and quite heavy. Patty did the pretty painting on the front. I thought it purely decorative and left it on my plant ladder outside.
Well, apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks it's pretty!
These two are continually in and out of the house. I don't see them carrying twigs so I'm wondering if they've already settled and might be tending babies.
I couldn't resist making a little movie -- about a minute and a half -- of Mrs. C. dashing in and out.
It's such a treat to have them here.
Can't wait to see what happens next!
