For Me?



(Happy Spring!)

  1. Awe! We have the Carolina Chickadees, I assume that's a Black-capped? The cutest birds, glad to know they like oranges. I usually place oranges out when I know the orioles are migrating. Happy Spring to you, Beth!

    1. Yes, this was a black-capped. They're year-round residents here, so they get to know us and they're very tame. I'd never noticed them going for the oranges before, but this is the first time I've place oranges in this particular feeder. I put them out for the orioles, too. :) Happy spring!

  2. So cute! As navel oranges are currently dropping from our tree (aided perhaps by my raccoon "friends"), I should follow your lead and cut that fruit for the birds to enjoy.

    1. Nice! I can't imagine having orange trees in my garden. That must be awesome. :)

  3. So sweet. Do chickadees like oranges. Who knew? My WW Post

    1. They do seem to peck at them a little. The house finches really like oranges, though, and of course so do the orioles, who will be visiting us in a few weeks. :)

  4. Oh my, I LOVE that! What other fruits do you put out?

    1. Hi Margaret: Actually, oranges are the only fruits I put out. The house finches like them, and so do the orioles when they get here in late April or early May. :)

  8. I had to chuckle when I saw the picture. The oranges are larger than the little chickadee. What a feast!

    1. Ha! Yes, they are little birds. Very tough and fast, though!

  9. Looks like spring! Still snowy here but I did see robins this morning and the mallards have returned to the river :)

    1. I'm late getting back to reply, sorry. We had some nice spring weather and even a few summery days, and now we flipped back to winter again. Looks like the extended forecast is more "normal" springy stuff...

  11. Oh what a cute photo!
    Yesterday as I walked to my mailbox, a Chickadee sat in a nearby shrub and watched me pass. I did not have my camera with me, and I think it knew that. If I take the camera with me, the birds hide!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks, Lea. Aren't chickadees the best? They're so cute and so tame, because they get to know us since they live here year-round. My favorite songbirds. :)

  12. Now that's a creative and fabulous bird feeder!

    1. I really like it, too. It can hold both seeds and fruits, and it's easy for birds of all types to access. :)

  13. Very cute! That is probably a very happy bird. Starlings came very early this year and wouldn't go away, so I switched my main feeders to the caged types which look much less decorative and more like little jails, ha!

    1. The chickadees are very happy. They stick around all year, so they really get to know us and are quite tame. :)
