So, my wife had a chainsaw yesterday. She did not hurt me or herself, but did not notice that she chopped down a branch with a chickadee nest with two babies… This was my afternoon tying the branch back to the tree! The bird family is doing fine…my wife is on chainsaw restriction..
You can’t see them, because my iPhone has no depth of field, but there are two baby chickadee chicks down there!
We stayed and watched until the parent chickadees came back with meal worms for the babies, The branch had been on the ground, but after a few minutes were able to find it in the tree. Both parents entered the nest and the family was reunited again!
