The little things in life can bring pleasure. I have noticed in the morning when I open the curtains by my desk that there are some chickadees that like to take a couple of seeds from this sunflower. I didn't plant the sunflower. It was a natural growth probably from a bird.

I had to giggle in the afternoon when I saw a chickadee return. It carefully picked up a seed and took it over to the brick pillar and dropped it into the hole. At first when I saw it land on the top of the pillar, I thought that it was going to use the brick to crack open the seed. I was surprised when I saw it push it far into the hole.

Then it took another one and headed to the electric line pole that a woodpecker likes to peck at and create holes. I am not sure if it found a hole or crack large enough to stash it in. But it was sure trying before it flew away. Maybe next time I will actually be able to get a picture of the chickadees. I put up a shepherd's hook and hung a feeder with some sunflower heads from the garden. Maybe the birds will plant a few more in that section of the garden. :^)
