Chickadee Bird House

The chickadee is one of the brave little spirits who spends the entire winter with us. In fact, they are non-migratory and live here year round! We can be of considerable service to him during the cold weather by providing food shelters. During the summer months his home is usually found in some decaying stump, therefore nesting boxes of the rustic type placed in some remote spot of the orchard or park are most attractive to him.

These birds are mainly small, stocky woodland species with short stout bills. They range in length from 10 to 22 centimeters. They are adaptable birds, with a mixed diet including seeds and insects. Many species will live around human habitation and come readily to bird feeders for nuts or seed, and learn to take other foods.
