Chickadees, Juncos and Downies

Even the magpies were at the public feeders in the parks.Otherwise I spotted  Downy Woodpeckers, Chickadees and Juncos.Waiting for the Pine Grosbeaks,  Bohemian Waxwings and a Bald Eagle was spotted the other day.





Great to See the Chickadees Again

I find Chickadees to be friendly , curious and a source of wonder that always gives me a lift. They kept their distance in the summer as they were busy raising their young. Now they fly up to me on the trails, sometimes seeking handouts. I was too close at times cutting off the tails  and blurring the photo. This one flew in front of me and landed on the trunk to eat its sunflower seed. I don’t think it was aware of my presence at first, judging from these two photos. I stepped back to get the shot, didn’t even have time to change my focal length and was surprised that part of it was in focus. Both photos were taken at 1/80 sec @f/5.0 ISO 800 210 mm
