Chickadee behavior

chickadeeThis morning as I ate my breakfast I noticed a chickadee taking a dip in the pool. He would sit for a moment on the arm of a metal chair. Then he flew off the chair and dipped his wings in the pool for just a few seconds. The bird then flew back to the arm of the chair, shook his feathers and repeated the process of dipping his wings in the pool. This continued for a few times until he finally flew into the tree behind the pool. Later this afternoon, a chickadee was sitting in the tree fussing at Larry and me as we relaxed in the pool. Of course, I don’t know if it was the same chickadee, but it was fun to think so.

God’s creation is so interesting. I was blessed to witness this behavior.
