Titmouse And Chickadees Love Mealworms and Bird Baths

The Bluebirds have a little competition this year for mealworms. The Tufted Titmouse and Carolina Chickadees also love them.  The Chickadees go a step further in that they LOVE to bathe in the water dish I have out by the feeder. The literally will sit in the small bowl of water to take a bath.  […]

Backyard Birds At Feeding Time Video

I created a small video collage of some of the backyard birds I have at feeding time.  Feeding time is around 6 p.m., where I fill the bird feeder with Black Oil Sunflower Seed, sprinkle some Nut and Berry Seed, and put out a few mealworms. While I have no idea where some of these […]

Disappearing Bird Stream Construction Stage Three

I’m now on stage 3 of my disappearing bird stream.  I’ve finished most of the actual layout.  I still need to mortar the rocks, get a ton of mulch for the whole area, and do some more landscaping. I had delivered 3000 pounds of moss rock, and smaller amounts of river pebbles and pond rock […]

Day 13 For Baby Carolina Chickadees

It won’t be long now.  I think if we didn’t have this little cold front, these little birds would probably be leaving the nest tomorrow.  Of course I did say I thought they would leave the nest by this weekend and I was wrong about that. Look how far they’ve come.  It’s amazing how fast […]

Day Eleven For Carolina Chickadee Babies

It won’t be long now!  Those Carolina Chickadee babies look like real birds, Carolina Chickadees even. There’s 4 birds in that nest, so they are starting to run out of room to be comfortable.  It was just a few days ago that they were just little pink masses with a tuft of hair. I finally […]

Mama Carolina Chickadee With Big Fat Caterpillar

I now have a new appreciation for human mothers if the job is similar to what a mother Carolina Chickadee goes through.  The babies look like Carolina Chickadees now, their eyes are open, they seem to have most of their feathers, and they are now constantly tweeting for the parents to bring them food. I […]

Day Nine For Carolina Chickadee Babies

Well it’s now day nine for the 4 Carolina Chickadee babies.  They still look really healthy, and not only do they no longer look like aliens, they are starting to actually resemble Carolina Chickadees. Before I share a picture and a video I have a disclaimer.  I really need a new video camera.  The one […]

Day Seven For The Carolina Chickadee Babies

Today is day seven for the Carolina Chickadee babies.  They are starting to look like real birds now and not some type of alien. All of them are starting to get some feathers, and I believe they are starting to make little tweeting sounds when they get hungry. Since this is day seven, it would […]

Monarch Caterpillars, Cedar Waxwings, And Baby Chickadees

Just a brief update tonight since I am getting home late.  I’ll be posting lots of pictures this weekend, especially since we now have lots of Monarch Caterpillars. I just checked some of our Milkweed plants tonight, and many of them are covered in Monarch Caterpillars.  The picture below is just one plant (and not […]

Carolina Chickadee Eggs Have Hatched!

This is so awesome!  The Carolina Chickadee that has a nest with 6 eggs is now a proud mother of 5 (last time I checked).  I had planned on putting the Birdcam inside of the bird house, but I think I waited too long.  Since 5 of the 6 eggs have hatched, I don’t feel […]

Two Carolina Chickadees In Love

I got a few lucky shots this afternoon.  The Carolina Chickadees, being very social birds, were making all kinds of chattering noises in the backyard.  I was fortunate to have my camera with me when the male (I’m assuming it’s the male) brings this little piece of grass to the female Chickadee for her nest.
