Chickadees seemed to be defending territory. They Chicka-dee-dee as we passed by. The behavior
seemed quite normal, as these small active birds
commonly approach strangers with their alarm call of chicka-dee-dee.
The Chickadees were
upset with more than us, though. Shortly after
this video was taken, two of them clasped each other,
and tumbled down through the shrubs to the ground .
It seems that at least on this occasion, the chicka dee-dee
scold was not meant for us.
