Then I took my snippers and basket and strolled through the yard, looking for material to make a winter bouquet.
At the same time, Tom was working on the roof and in the front of the house, finally getting the Christmas lights down.
The bush tits and chickadees were busy at the bird feeders. The chickadees scolded when Tom got too near, but the fearless bush tits were diving all around him, especially as he worked on the tree where they sit and wait their turn at the feeders.
We have both black capped and chestnut backed chickadees, but they are hard to capture in pics because they do not sit at the feeders. Instead they land, snatch, and instantly fly off to eat.
