what’s in a name…

we call them chickadees because of their song:  chick-a-dee-dee-dee, (or a variation thereof)  but they are titmice.  it’s their family name, often shortened to “tits”.  uh-huh…   sounds rather british, doncha think??   i’m not sure if this is a black-capped or a carolina because we see both this time of year;  the carolina chickadees live here full-time.

the plump little guys/gals are frequent visitors at the feeders …   love them tits..!  feed them tits..!  watch those tits flying here and there..!

k, that’s enough…
