In my first Outdoor Hour Challenge post, I mentioned near the end that there was a beautiful black and brown bird that was a frequent guest in my backyard. I wondered what it was.
I have spent a good deal of time in the last 2 months trying to figure out what it was. Finally, thanks to the bird feeder drawing him here and giving him incentive to remain a few minutes, I was able to snap his picture and therefore discover what type of bird he is:
A Chestnut-backed Chickadee!
Isn’t he cute?
