Feeding those Chickadees and Nuthatches again – Sarsaparilla Trail, Ottawa

My cycling partner was in town today so off we went to the Greenbelt Trails in search of Ottawa’s ferocious chickadees that attack the visitors’ hands in search of nourishment. They don’t really attack, but I always tell visitors that! Adds a bit to the suspense of the moment when the hand is outstretched waiting for something to happen.

Today the Chickadees were joined by three Red-breasted Nuthatches with their long pointed bills.

Running out of seed. QUICK! Better leave now before they notice :-).
