Gotta love those Chickadees

Gotta love those Chickadees
Not the best image with that patch of blown-out white on its face, but I thought this little Black-capped Chickadee (macro) was still rather cute. Seen in the Weaselhead Natural Area on 28 January 2014, when I managed to push myself out the front door to go for a walk in Weaselhead with friends. The morning started off unpleasantly cold, but gradually warmed up. The pathways were covered in ice and one person did fall, unfortunately, so I was relieved I had my ice grabbers on my winter boots. We had a few nice sightings, which gave reasonable photo opps, including several House Finches, a fluffed up Downy Woodpecker, this little Chickadee and a beautiful Snowshoe Hare who was well camouflaged against the snow and was hiding in a tangle of branches. At the end of the walk, a Coyote was spotted, hunting in the field by the parking lot. A most enjoyable walk in good company : )

Always a favourite ... there are many at the feeder this year ... less food for them with the ice and snow we have had ... but here ... they are being fed well ... excellent capture!!
