Love me some Chickadee!

How is your winter birding going so far? Have you seen a snowy owl? I've been over-run with Chickadees but I don't mind....

Love that last shot of the sweet Chickadee. Although I've been having Chickadees at my feeders, I'm mostly seeing swarms of Redpolls, with occasional woodpeckers and gray jays.

I love the cute Chickadees, great shots! I would love to see the Snowy Owl here this year. No sighting yet.

I so LOVE to hear the Chickadees, even when not in sight they relax me with their conversations.

I would love to teach you to knit too, but don't think I will be in Michigan anytime soon. I have started the very basic with Mason (yep, he is growing up, believe it or not he will be 4 this month!)

Love that Chickadee! Actually, we've seen several Snowy Owls every time we go out back-roading. SOOO excited to see them again. Such a beautiful bird. I've been posting pics of them on my blog.

Your little Chickadees are so cute!!! I love their song, too! Check out my blog for more bird pictures;-)

Really sweet pictures, Shelley! You got some great shots. :-) I haven't seen any snowy owls. That would be cool to see!

Excellent shots.It is hard to get them at the feeder for long.I saw 6 at one feeder recently, beautiful little birds.

You take the best bird pictures! Chickadees, little birds that just fill me with joy and cause me to smile as they also throng to my feeders. "Love me some chickadee " indeed!

Liz said...

Great images. That second shot is gorgeous - such a great close up! Cute little bird.

I would love to be overrun by your chickadees. Beautiful!
Winter birding has been bad over here as this is the worse winter in terms of snow and snow storms since we've been in Iceland.

Aren't the chickadees wonderful? Terrific images of one of my favorite birds! We have had so many chickadees visiting our feeders of late. Love their cute calls and curious nature. There are a couple Snowy Owls along Chicago's lakefront this year. I felt blessed to see one of them last month. Gorgeous bird!

Oh send some my way, I love them

They are such sweet little birds.

I'd sure love to see one of those snowy owls. I read in our newspaper that there are a lot of them this year in states where they are usually not seen.

Hi Shelley!!!! Have you guys gotten any snow yet? We just got our first real snowfall! About 9".
Great pictures of the little chick-a-dees!!!

I love the Ninja Kitchen system! I have used it almost every other day!
And funny you should mention the Hot Apple Cider K-cups! I got those for the hubby and he loves them!

Hope you had a great Chritsmas! Miss you, and miss talking to you. Hope all is well with your family.

Beautiful Chickadee shots!! I have a couple Chickadees that visit throughout the day, but, I'm having a Starling problem (I'm being over-run by them).

Very nice photographs. Once, on a hike, two chickadees landed in my wife's hair and stayed there for a couple of minutes as we walked along. A very special thing.
