Does anyone know what kind of bird this is? Every year, for 2 or 3 nights, they roost on my front porch. They always tuck into the corner face first, but this year, I was able to get a pic of it's face.
I believe it's a black-capped chickadee: Chickadee
We have mourning doves that tried again and again to build nests on the insides of our column caps, just like that bird. I asked DH to take some scrap wood trim and build some supports, so their nesting material wouldn't just fall off. They've been coming back for years now. I call it our Bird Condo
He's a cutie! I've had some kind of black scissor-tail birds build nests on the front porch eaves, but they make such a mess . We put up a fake snake, and they left . Maybe chickadees keep a cleaner house .
That little one on the right is a dead ringer for the ones on my porch, QSis. They are really cute little things. For the past 4 years or so, there has only been one. This year we had two. They stay for 2 or 3 nights, never build a nest, they just sleep there. After those couple of nights, they are gone till the next year. I always look forward to their visit. Thank y'all for helping me figure out what it is!
