Chickadees and Nuthatches excavate their own nest holes. I was lucky enough to find both birds working on their nest sites last week.
A Flicker came along to see what the action was all about. He wasn’t welcome and got chased away by the little Chickadee.
A check in some different habitat revealed a Boreal Chickadee. A very special little bird that is not that common in northern Minnesota.
These Chickadees like the Jack Pine habitat and boggy areas with Black Spruce and Tamarack trees.
I just can’t get enough of these little brown headed Chickadees!
