My Little Chickadee

I just happened to catch sight of this little chickadee busily plucking away at some animal fur she had found in my garden.  This video isn't very long because my batteries chose that particular time to give out.  But you get the idea.  I tried taking a couple of still photos before I switched on the video, but she was just moving and working too fast--it was all a blur.  Even though this is a very short film (about 7 seconds), it is quite entertaining!

This is the 3rd nest that I know of for the chickadees this year so far.  They love the bluebird house I have in my cottage garden, and have used it for the last several years.  Just this morning I saw mama chickadee stick her head out of the house before she headed for the bird feeders a short distance away.  I'm amazed at how many chickadee chicks she has raised thus far!
