    Later in day after the HTC RE's battery gives up (about two hours) sometimes these bird would come up that would grab a seed between their talons and peck at it. I just got silhouettes so I wasn't able to ID. Today I did. It's my black-capped chickadees!

    I suspect this is a Northern Cardinal female. The plumage is much less colorful and while the other two go right up on the tray and push others around, this one usually stays on the deck and goes through the knockoff. This one will bully other birds scrounging through the knockoff.
