Mom's brief morning of birding

Mom:

"I decided to venture out into the -15C (-25 w/windchill) this morning to attempt to do a bit of birding. I didn't go out too far, only along the small wooded area next to my mom's place and a bit further. Anyway, I didn't see anything going out, but I had a bit of fun coming back. I saw one Chickadee near the path. Then while I was going across the wooded area next to my mom's place, I heard some Chickadee chatter, so I did my little call (for the first time, lol), and next thing you know, I had about 6 Chickadees coming around!!! Even if I didn't find anything exotic, it made my morning, just the fact that I managed to attract some birds. :) When I looked up, I also noticed a nest very high up in the tree, but I'm not sure who it belongs to... (I'm very much a novice at this!!) I might try to go out later with some sunflower seeds and try to attract one to my hand."
