his blog entry posted today. I had a three special wishes for winter birding this year including seeing an owl and some less common woodpeckers. And I wanted to have Chickadees feed from my hand. All my wishes have been fulfilled as the Chickadees and a Red-breasted Nuthatch fed from my hand at last. I took this video just as my camera batteries died. (I had batteries in the car, but it was a long trek through the snow to go back for them.) You will have to see Sam's blog for more pictures. I was happy to see two male Red-winged blackbirds who assured me that spring is really here. And the Red-bellied Woodpecker was a first for me too.
