I have to ask. Is it just pure peanut butter in a jar or did you add other items to the jar of peanut butter? Thanks for sharing. Your pictures are great! I love birds and feed them too.

Hi Joan, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We did except for the fact that my sons and families could not get here for Christmas... Too much snow on the mountain..... And here in TN ---they don't scrape the back roads... None of my sons have a 4-wheel drive. Oh Well--SIGH!!!! At least we did have a White Christmas ---the first for us in many years.

Love your Chickadees... You'll have to check my blog today... George gave me a Chickadee ornament... It's so cute!!!!!

Happy New Year.
Hugs,
Betsy

very nice photos of a darn cute bird!
I want to know about the jar also...

Cathy Clementz said...

They are so sweet. I'm glad we have them where we are. I think they are my 2nd favorite bird.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

What cute pictures! I love them too, they are so freindly and fun to watch. I'm trying to convince my oldest daughter to let them eat from her hands.
I'm interested in that feeder too!

J.J. in L.A. said...

I love the peanut butter jar feeder...what a great idea! And those Chicks are gorgeous. Short and fat...just like me. ; )

Ginnymo said...

These little birds are the cutest and I love hearing them. What beautiful close ups you got of them also!! I used to keep a seed bell on my window but the darn squirrels always knock it off. But the Chickadees come down on the ground anyway. The little hawk got a bird today and I'm sure glad I didn't see what kind it was. Makes me sad. But that is nature. Happy New Year Joan!!

Ratty said...

These pictures of the chickadee are wonderful. I am so envious. My next post is going to be about chickadees too, but my pictures are as bad as yours are good. I was just happy enough to be able to see them at all. Your pictures are like a very happy bonus for me since I'm thinking so much about these same birds right now. Great stuff!

Red said...

I had a chickadee land on my hand once. Of course I flinched and the chickadee took off. Another time one landed on my peanut butter sandwich very much to my surprise. Your pictures really caught what you said in your description...very playful energetic birds. Keep up the good work.

SquirrelQueen said...

The little Chickadees are adorable. I love all of your photos of them but my favorite is the one with the snowflake on his beak, that is so cute.

Brenda's Arizona said...

Is this your garden? With the birds? YES, please tell us about the peanut butter!

Mariel said...

great pictures!! chickadees are just adorable!! my grandmother calls my children "chickadees"!! So these pics are extra special to us :) Thanks for sharing!

Pearl said...

There's no winter birdy like the chickadee. I love their fat little bodies and that pretty little face!

Sharon Wagner said...

That's my husband's favorite bird as well. I love their call.

Far Side of Fifty said...
