Brighten up a dreary winter day by seeing the cheerful, chirpy chickadees that are typically black, white and gray. These bold birds are easy to spot and they love bird feeders with sunflower seeds, and they also like suet. It is more likely to see these feathered friends one at a time because they have their own hierarchy and the dominant chickadee eats first. They are also known to grab one seed, eat it, and come back for more. If one is not seen, don't worry because more will surely come!
Experience hand feeding chickadees this February in Cleveland Metroparks - part of your life, naturally!
