105/366 | Carolina Chickadee

Today I did a lot of work in the yard. Planted an herb garden, removed old metal edging from a bed replacing it with monkey grass, planted a couple more flowers and trimmed a Crape Myrtle. Most of this was near the Chickadee nest box and the parents were NOT happy with me since they were trying to feed their growing babies. I figured while there I might as well grab my camera. It appeared both parents were involved in feeding. In some of the pictures they were bringing snails, grubs, spiders and other unidentifiable insects. One capture showed both a snail and an insect in one beak. I guess with so many mouths to feed they were doing two at a time. Pretty smart! I believe this is a spider and part of the web is trailing out of her mouth. OR it could be something that was stuck inside a web.
