Wednesday Wings - Chickadee

The cute, friendly little Chickadees have no time to sit still for a picture. They like to grab a sunflower seed and fly off to crack it in a nearby tree.

It took dozens of camera clicks to finally catch a Chickadee during a momentary absence of motion.

Normally the niger feeder is full of Goldfinches, but a few Chickadees have been giving it a try and seem to like it.

They stay on the feeder to eat and don't fly off with the little niger seeds like they do with the sunflower seeds.

Now I know why youre photos turn out so well, you display the same patience with photography as you do with you knitting. I so enjoy your photos.

Oh, I miss the chickadees. Every time I put a feeder up anymore I get inundated with House sparrows :( I don't even bother now.

Thanks for the beautiful photos!
