I put up some feeders. The first few days was nothing but chickadees and titmice - which, no complaints! - but then others started showing up. Here are some pictures. Note that chickadees generally don't stay at the feeder; they can't crack open the seeds easily, so they grab one, take it to a tree, eat it, and come back for another. Titmice will often do the same thing, but sometimes they stay and crack open the seeds on the bottom of a usefully-shaped feeder.
