And speaking of the Chickadee, and since you were wondering…
if I was a bird, the bird I’d most like to be is the Black Capped Chickadee…dee dee
It is a small bird and one might think delicate bird, but it is more hardy and able to weather the harsh winter as ably as it does the summer’s heat. Always makes a living no matter the apparent hardships. It is gregarious, like O’Malley, it is the leader of the band which includes its relatives the Nuthatch and Titmouse, and friends - the Warblers, Kinglets, Woodpeckers and others. Always calling out, keeping its rainbow coalition together. When I hear it speak, I wait, knowing I am in for a treat.
…and it reminds me of a favorite Winter song (apologies to Spoon).
