Critter of the Day: my little chickadee

I just uploaded another batch of photos from the feeding station outside our living room window. I’ll be posting the last of the March images over the next while, starting with this little cutie!


The chickadees like to grab seed from the feeders, then go into the lilac branches. There, we can see them pecking at the branch they are on, apparently trying to break the seed they brought with them. The blue jays like to do the same thing with sunflower seeds.

Critter of the Day: Black Capped Chickadee

I’ve uploaded another batch of photos from the camera in the living room.  I’m so happy!  There were so many good shots, it was hard to choose which ones to post.  I’ll be putting them up, little by littler, over the next few days.

First up, we’ve got this adorable little puff ball.


I’m not usually able to catch the birds while they’re in the lilac bushes.  The camera on its tripod is set up facing the feeding station.  By the time I’ve spotted a bird in a spot I can see with the camera (sometimes, that means quickly tilting over the tripod!) and turn the camera, they’re usually gone.  They do not stay anywhere for long!
