Chickadee Receptionist


An old Cherokee saying is that if a chickadee looks at you upside-down, tilting his head to the side until it looks like he's standing on his head, that's a sign that a visitor is on the way to see you.

Better put some coffee on!

The word for chickadee is tsigilili, which sounds like 'jee-gih-LEE-lee."
