A Chickadee Inspects a Tree

DSC_0440 A cheerful little chickadee

in spring a nesting hole did see,

DSC_0441 It stuck its tiny head inside

to check how deep and how wide

DSC_0442 But looking was not good enough

Would this hole hold all their stuff?

DSC_0443 And so the birdy ventured in,

was there room for kith and kin?

DSC_0444 A deeper look and then a ponder,

would this do, or should it wander?

DSC_0445 Like all of us in this state,

I am sure it must consult its mate!


I photographed this little chickadee at the Mere Point Boat Launch on April 29, 2015. I have since seen several chickadees in my yard and at the boat launch, so I would say that this nesting season was successful!


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
