Chickadee



Sunday afternoon my mother and I were sitting on the patio swing when I remembered I needed to fill the birdfeeders. No sooner had I done so and sat down again when two little chickadees landed on one. I ran for my camera and snapped this one. They are FAST, let me tell ya. They took one seed, flew to a nearby tree, and then returned for another. Out of 3 shots, this was the only good one. I haven't seen chickadees since I was a little girl. It's very small--think twice the size of a hummingbird.
