A BIRD FOR ALL SEASONS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

A nice thing about photographing chickadees is that if you don’t capture the one you’re aiming for there will be others around in no time at all. They dart by so quickly that you often end up with a well focused branch! They do slow down a bit in winter though when they’re more dependant on handouts. The chickadee in the first photograph was taken in August; it was molting and looked a little bedraggled. The second, taken in early December was sporting a sleeker look.

  2. Your Chickadees look identical to what we would call Blue Tits.

  3. lovely shots, Belinda! ours are all-year-round residents, too … the main reasons why the sunflower seeds, suet, hummingbird nectar, and blueberries deplete so quickly. 🙂

  4. I’m glad you pointed out the difference in these two chickadees because of the molting factor, it’s just simple little things like that which really evermore must increase the interest of the very-lay birder (like me) in your wonderful images. Great shots, both of these.

  11. Sounds familiar, that ‘well focused branch’… 🙂 The smaller they are, the faster they’re gone…
