I had not expected the feeder to attract so much attention after so many days of absence, but when seeds are offered, action happens. The number of chickadees and titmice arriving all at once in a very short time was surprising. It was also nice to think that some of these foraging chickadees might be the youngsters that fledged from my nest box this past spring.
