My sister, brother and I were raised by bird lovers, so we all inherited the bird feeding and watching habits our parents shared with us as we were growing up. This chickadee is on a peanut feeder out my sister's front window.
Suet is a favorite food of lots of birds and this little downy woodpecker is taking full advantage of the feeder in my sister's front yard.
This nest was revealed when all the leaves fell off the small crab apple tree outside my dining room window. I wish I had known it was there while it was inhabited!
