I just read something I find fascinating in Smithsonian magazine (April 2020, titled Wild Man).  My wifi is down so can't confirm the statement, that Chickadee nestlings may consume 6000 to 9000 caterpillars before they fledge.

Maybe it's just me, but doesn't that seem like an amazing amount?

Nature is just so cool!
