BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE

Chickadee 1

Chickadees are curious and bold, often feeding right out of your hand. They remain all year round and survive our winters by lowering their body temperature.  Chickadees make great subjects but can be challenging to shoot.  They’ll fly in close, perch within feet of you and just when your camera is in position they’ll fly off again.  In this case the bird was cooperative and the branches form a natural frame.

  3. I have a pair of chickadees zooming in and out of the birdfeeder right now, but have been unable to get a good shot yet. Persistence is the name of the game!
