Photo Of The Day: Carolina Chickadee

Blogged

For the longest time, we had very few birds fluttering around here then when the rare snow smothered everything, they all came out looking for yummy black oil sunflower seeds.  This little Carolina Chickadee is banging away at his while holding it against a limb.  I fired off about 10 shots with my D3X and managed to get several keepers.  I’ve found the easiest way to get a shot of these very fast little birds is to wait until after they crack their seed and eat it.  They will always look up and pause for a nanosecond before darting back to the ground to pick up another one. Click on the photo for the large view.

Thanks for the visit and have a great week ahead.

  1. They really are cute little birds. The joy of nature is at our beck and call if we just take the time to notice. Fantastic image, John. Glad you took the time to take this picture for us to enjoy as well.
