Don’t forget the peanuts!

A number of wild song birds consider peanuts a “treat” and will frequently visit peanut feeders.  If you place the feeder near a window, you will be able to take great photos of a variety of wild song birds.  Be sure to use the peanuts made for wild song birds and not the kind purchased at food stores.  The appropriate peanuts can be purchased from many stores selling wild bird song bird supplies.

Answer to bird watchers identification question:  Species of Chickadees are difficult to identify unless you are an expert.  Most probably, the Chickadee in the photo is a Carolina Chickadee since the photo was taken in Piedmont North Carolina.  Carolina Chickadees generally reside in the Southeastern United States.  Black-capped Chickadees are prevelant in other parts of the United States.
