A week or two back we watched this Black-capped Chickadee mercilessly ripping apart these fluffy cattails near a riverbank close to home. We had heard that Chickadees sometimes use this fluff as material for their nests however this birds was discarding the wonderful fluff and letting it fly into the wind.
We figured they must be foraging for food. Perhaps Seeds?
This bird worked diligently but it was not seeds they were after. A small grub was their prize.
Happy Friday and wishing you a wonderful weekend.
