There was a family if Bushtits at our bird bath this morning including at least two fuzzy fledglings.
Later in the day I was in the garden obeying the laws of nature. Law #1–Thou must dead-head the wildly bloom-crazed roses. As I bent over one bush with my clippers I heard a soft fluffing if feathers, looked up in time to see Chestnut-backed Chickadee and on a feeder five feet away. They are much less common in ir area in summer than their “big” cousins, the back-capped.
