Feed Me!!

I know their call...
Two whistled notes, the first higher then the second,
to my ear, it sounds like "feed me"...and feed them I do!!
 
 It is the Black Capped Chickadee

 They visit year round and are the friendliest bird that comes to the feeders.
 
 They rarely fly away when I sit and watch them...
 
they pose beautifully for the camera...
and rarely allow a branch to come between them and my lens.
 
 They sing for treats...

and take off slowly, to allow for a picture. 
They are just the sweetest little birds, dressed for winter...
don't you just love their jet black caps?

  16. Awesome shots, Debbie! I love the second to last! We have the Carolina version, but they might as well be one in the same.

  17. Oh what a beautiful bird; I love their jet black capes. As I think about it; I miss the sound of birds singing. I haven't seen many around here. I hope to see more in the spring because you have helped me want to look a little closer to the birds and other of our feathered creatures. We really enjoyed watching the sweet little birds that made a nest in our tree last year. I did get some pictures and posted on them. Your pictures are magnificent.
    Blessings and hugs!

  19. Yes! I do love them! We had disease go through here years ago that wiped out our Chickadee population, but they are slowly recovering. I'm glad because I love them so!

  27. I love chickadees and, in fact, they are the State Bird of Massachusetts. They don't seem to mind being around people. I guess they know that they are just so adorable who would want to hurt them. Great pics!!
