The Chipmunk and the birdseed

Good morning little Chipmunk. It’s nice to see you, but this birdseed is for birds, not for Chipmunks.


Chippy replied, “hmmmm – please, can I try just one”?



Nibble, nibble, nom, nom, nom, Crunch, GOOBLE, CHOMP, NOM, NOM, NOM!!



After finishing the entire pile, he said, “thank you for the birdseed, but if you want to feed just birds, you shouldn’t put out snacks Chippies love to eat!”




I thought to myself, wow! That is one smart Chipmunk!



A Cedar Waxwing courtship ritual

The Cedar Waxwing is a bird that’s hard to not to love. They are incredibly beautiful with a delicate and sophisticated appearance, they travel in groups and display behaviors that personify love and caring for each other.


During courtship, the male will offer the female a gift of something like a piece of fruit, a flower petal, or an insect. They will pass it back and forth until the gift is eaten.  I have seen this ritual a few times and it’s the sweetest thing to watch!

Here is a little something for you….

Once the ritual starts, the birds are very focused on each other. If you are really lucky you can see them in the trees passing their gift back and forth, back and forth.

Would you like it?
Here you go.
Aww…. thank you! I love it!


Cedar Waxwings are found throughout North America. You can see them in places where fruiting trees are available as a food source.
