Mountain Chickadee(Poecile gambeli)

    Newer Older

    We don't see this species very often at our elevation(5000 ft), except during winter. They're more often seen in the mountains(imagine that). This image( was taken in Brighton, Utah with an elevation of more than 9,000 ft.

      Adorable, and typical.. spill out all the seeds to get to the one they want. Good close up shot.

      Great eye crispness! Chickadees in general are not as easy to photograph as people think.

      LOVE the picture. First, they don't hold still long and your photo is so clear. Second, the flying food just gives it a neat touch.

      I saw one in my backyard a few minutes ago, they aren't very big.
