Chickadee and Grandma Kenney.
Ever since I was a little girl my Grandma has called me her chickadee. I'm not completely sure where the name originated in terms of calling me that, but I've always liked it. It is, to this day, the only nickname I have. However (a big however here) my Grandma is the only person who can call me this. So friends be forewarned, if you ever call me this I will not respond.
In tribute to this childhood nickname, here is a chickadee.
Some cool chickadee facts? The chickadee will hide seeds and other food items to eat later, similar to a squirrel. The chickadee will place each item in a different spot and can remember thousands of hiding places. How is this possible you ask? "Every autumn Black-capped Chickadees allow brain neurons containing old
information to die, replacing them with new neurons so they can adapt to
changes in their social flocks and environment even with their tiny
brains" (All About Birds). Now that is cool.
I am also contributing a picture of my grandma to this post...
Note: I will not post this entire challenge about animals. They are just the most common thing in my life, the most common thing that I share with other people. So get used to it!
