                                                                                  I love to sit and watch the little Chick-a-Dee's and nuthatches that spend the winter here. We have a feeder for them filled with oily black sunflower seeds, which they feast on all day. They roost in the holly tree and butterfly bushes between forays to the feeder. At night they sleep in the towering firs and pines because of the falcons and eagles who often prey on them. We also have other birds who visit the feeder in winter, song sparrows, flickers, blue jays, actually any that have not gone south to warmer climes. But Chick-a-Dees are my favorite.
