The rain, that had been forecast for Wednesday past, decided to finally appear and put an end to my alfresco dining plans. Just as well really, as if I'd stayed outside I would have disturbed the fur-gathering, nest-building acrobatics of this Chestnut-backed Chickadee (Poecile rufescens). It was very entertaining to see this industrious, little bird go about the business of feathering, or rather dog-furring, his nest. I brushed V1 three more times during the day and each time my little chickadee cleaned out the dog-brush entirely. Recycling at its finest!
