    Nice! Love watching these little guys. They only migrate as far as Chicago every few years. I haven’t seen one yet this season.

      We have them here all year long, though sittings of them are few and far between. They love to hang out in the deep mixed woods. I found this one in an island of large pine tree surrounded by tall Hemlock and Oak trees. With this bird it’s always that old birders comment when finding them, “I hear them a lot more the I actually see them”. Nothing to get discouraged about! This was my only sitting so far this year of them but more will come eventually. I do hear them occasionally handing around with the Black-capped Chickadee and White-breasted Nuthatches. Anyway, enjoy your day Leslie and thank you for stopping by. 🙂

    Two years ago I had a few of them spend the winter in my backyard eating at the peanut feeder and hanging out in the pine trees. And yes, they hung out with the Chickadees and White-breasted Nuthatches. They were a delight to watch and I was sorry to see them head back north in the spring.
