I Instagrammed this cell phone pic of a wet chickadee this morning. It was perched on my hand while I sipped coffee and waited for it to dry.
At 6:40 a.m. my neighbor called and said he had a job for me. A chickadee got stuck in the jelly in his oriole feeder. He rinsed it off in the birdbath but had to go to work and wanted me to keep an eye on it.
When it hopped on my shoulder and flew to the window sill I knew it was okay. I released the little bird back into “the wild”.
