Who doesn’t love a cute little chickadee! In the winter time when we go to Stanley Park or to the bird sanctuary we always take a supply of black oil sunflower seeds with the hopes of seeing these adorable little guys.

FACT: “Every autumn Black-capped Chickadees allow brain neurons containing old information to die, replacing them with new neurons so they can adapt to changes in their social flocks and environment even with their tiny brains.” [allaboutbirds.org]
