A Chickadee using a hummingbird feeder to get water.
For the past 6 months I have been battling with stage 4 lung cancer. For most of that time I have been confined to a lift chair and hospital bed, and so I find enjoyment watching birds outside of the window next to me. Most of the time I've seen hummingbirds, until one day this little guy discovered the small well of rain water trapped in the middle of the feeder. He has inspired me to remember that anything is possible.
