The young fledgling birds out in my garden and still dependent on parents:  English Sparrow…Downy…Black-capped Chickadee…House Finch.  I see adult and youngster together in the smoke tree, on the feeding platforms, moving through the bushes along the fence.

At one point a pair of Black-capped Chickadees are feeding alternately at the feeders.  Then a third chickadee shows up and complaints break out, the rat-tat-tat of calls.  Are the calls angry?  Pleading of a youngster?  I don’t quit comprehend the chickadee language so I’ll never know.   Each one feeds on the platform, then vanish back into the bushes.BBC ON LIM (1280x960) BCC ON RIM (1280x960)bbc-feeds dw-suet1 dw-suet2
