I'm curious to know how one can tell chickadees are in a family group? We
have about a dozen chickadees who are regular visitors to our feeder in
Charlotte. Is it likely they are related? We've been missing the gold
finches that were with us in good numbers (more than a dozen) through
early January, but have since disappeared with the exception of an
occassional visitor. Also enjoying a female hairy woodpecker, 2
white-breasted nuthatches, lots of blue jays, American tree sparrows,
several pairs of cardinals and the occassional mourning dove.
