Information: The black-capped chickadee comes to my feeders often and steals a black sunflower seed and then quickly leaves. They are very friendly at the feeders and are really good about sharing. Of course the easiest method of knowing a chickadee is around is the “chicka – dee – dee – dee” sound in the trees and then just keep an eye on your nuts and most likely one will show up.
