Black-capped Chickadee nesthole

Chickadees and Nuthatches excavate their own nest holes. I was lucky enough to find both birds working on their nest sites last week.

Northern Flicker, yellow-shafted

A Flicker came along to see what the action was all about. He wasn’t welcome and got chased away by the little Chickadee.

Boreal 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!
