I recommend that everyone (at least, once in their lifetime) stand outside while chickadees are actively feeding. The human stands statue-still with black oiler seeds on their upraised, open hands. Soon, the bravest (alpha) chickadees will alight to snatch a seed. Then, things get exciting. It is a good way to demonstrate to children how patience is rewarded. In this event, the reward is a thrill of childish delight (which is a good thing for everyone).
