A pretty little Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla) perched in their favourite bush, the Rose of Sharon Bush. We have around 5 of these guys in the yard at any given time. There was a family raised in one of our Bird Houses this summer. They are real fun to have around!

Actually this pretty Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla) is drinking out of a cup on our rain chain. It seems to like the privacy of this small cup!

One of our local flock of Chickadees. We have a half dozen or so that stay with us all year! They love Sunflower seeds and are forever flitting to the feeder, grabbing and seed and going to a branch like this to peck the seed open and eat it!

Here’s my little Chickadee friend.  Today it’s got the sunflower seed clasped between it’s feed!  There it can peck away at the seed and get to the good stuff inside!


Prized Possession

A Black-capped Chickadee deep in the Butterfly bush in our garden.  It has a single sunflower seed which it picked up from our feeder.  It then went back into this bush to crack it open and eat the inside.


Little Visitor

I went out this afternoon to specifically get a few shots of our first Gladiola of the year.  While doing the this Chickadee came over to see what I was up to!  They are very curious about anything that goes on in the garden.

…ADee that is!  A Black-capped Chickadee to be precise.

I just love these little guys.  We have four or five that live here.  They are with us year round.  It’s a pleasure to watch them flitting about!

A tiny Black-capped Chickadee

took to following me down the trail the other day.

I think it was expecting a treat, but I didn’t have any to give.

I think it was a bit cross at me!

On the same day as the last one, here's another Black-capped Chickadee
