On Friday evening we were having dinner on our backyard patio when we saw a Chestnut-backed Chickadee nestling fluttering around. It evidently was the first of the brood to have fledged from the nest “box” we have up on the side of the house above the patio. The nestling had a stubby tail and obviously was not an experienced flyer nor did he seem concerned about the three human adults and two children sitting at the picnic table. At one point it even flew up onto the table and looked at us as if we were going to feed it.
