"Fear not little flock for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Luke 12:. 32 "

This little guy found a way to get into our old porch today but he also knew how to get back outside the same way he got in.. I think he wanted to get away from the cold weather. Snow flakes are falling again this afternoon. Best View in Light-box. Thanks!

Heard the sound of knocking
But it wasn't at the door.
There was also some rocking,
Like dance steps on the floor...

When checking it out to see.....
Found a black capped Chickadee
Flying around the front porch...
Who kept bumping into things.....
While looking for a good perch......
To rest his weary wings!!!

    It is amazing how the chickadee found its way to get into your old porch and that could get back outside the same way he got in!!!

    Thank you Ann for your comment..Chickadees are so tiny it is easy for them to get into small openings...We even see birds flying around the rafters in well constructed stores that sell home improvement items, bird seed etc:) .
