I love Chickadee's. I had no idea we had them here in Florida until about 6 months ago. I was so happy to get a couple of shots of one. Beautiful photos.

For some strange reason, we don't have them in this area (2 km from the famous birding mecca, Point Pelee, can you believe it?!?!) I do wish they would hurry up and moved into the area, I haven't seenone in 4 years since moving here! Thanks goodness for your wonderful photos to remind me of their charm!!

Shelly: I really enjoy those little birds.

Ginnymo said...

I love these birds and you have got such beautiful close ups of them! I don't know why I don't see mine any more. I had lots of them all winter. Maybe they go somewhere else for the summer. Or maybe it's because there are too many Starlings and Bluejays. I never saw the Gold finches again so took my feeder down and put it out front in case they go by. There are Hummingbirds out back but I never see any. I don't have anything for them. I tried a feeder last year on my window but the ants and bees took over. And the squirrels jumped up and knocked it around and made a sticky mess down the building..Ha! Those darn squirrels!
Take care Shelly.

Rene said...

It must be chickadee day! I think your little guy needs a hairbrush in photo #2. :)

jalynn01 said...

Leedra said...

As usual your chickadee is putting on a good show for you. Especially like the first photo, like that eye!

Daisy said...

HA! Well, he will have a well toned neck at least. :D heee!

Richard's comment made me laugh.

Nick S said...

Glad to see the little guys are still around Shelly :-)

So cute Shelley. I love how you can see its delicate little feathers in the level of detail you were able to bring out.

Chickadees are just such cute birds to watch and photograph, aren't they Shelley????
