We are seeing them in my neighborhood at Sea Ranch. Just watched a nest hatch from a hole in a broken tree.

I monitor a nest box trail in the SF bay area. The number of chestnut-backed chickadees using my boxes this year is about half the number I usually get.
Where Darliss and I live in Brooktrails we have only a limited number of birds, both resident and migrants. However, Chestnut-backed Chickadees have been one of the spices always present in our yard at our feeders water stations. That is until this early spring. Since mid February we have not observed a single chickadee. Has anyone else found them to be missing?
