Unlike other birds that fly south to avoid the bitter chill of winter, the hearty and cheerful little chickadee remains, chirping merrily through snow, ice, wind and rain.
According to E.B. White, the Black-capped Chickadee:
"Was put on earth to demonstrate the power of positive thinking. No day is dark, no night is cold, no hour is evil, no harm is in sight, no news is bad. An acrobat and an optimist, the Chickadee is perfectly named (he named himself), perfectly designed. We should all wear a black cap, ignore weather reports, and make friends easily."
One can't help but smile when you see these friendly faces hopping in the snow!
