The Chickadee Empire Demands More Tributes

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Recently, my mountain has been invaded by the Chickadee Horde. They raid my bird feeder, flying off with sunfower seeds, one per beak, they sit on the tree outside my office window and right in front of me, they pick open the hard seed shells with their tiny, sharp beaks. If I get close to the window, they yell, "Chicka-dee-dee-dee!" as loud as possible and raise their tiny black caps a whole 1/2" which is so terrifying, I rush to the store to buy them more seeds. We cannot be intimidated by them! Where is the National Guard? The cats?
