Attacked by songbirds

 

In the U.P. last weekend, every time we walked out of the cottage, we were greeted by chickadees and red-breasted nuthatches. They would land on my knee, or my head, and when I tried to take a picture they would jump up onto my camera. A magical experience. But then I wondered: are these birds starving? Did the conifers fail to set cones? I don't know the answer.
