Chickadees: What's Not to Love?

A couple of years ago I bought this decorative item and hung it in our 'garden art' tree never thinking that it would be anything more than a decoration. One day I noticed a Chickadee peeking inside. I found that rain water had collected in it! I drilled a hole in the bottom and placed a plastic dish inside so the Chickadees could have a drink.
