It's still very much a black and white winter world here in Winneshiek County - this black-capped chickadee fits right in with the black tree trunks and white snow though. Thank goodness the sun was shining today and showing us some beautiful blue sky!

These cute little characters are year-round residents of the Northern United States and Canada, and are plentiful around many nature centers in Michigan where this image was captured. They are generally curious and unafraid, and will readily eat birdseed out of the hand of a person holding it.

These cuties have decided to nest in the wren house in the backyard. Looking forward to meeting the little ones.

Since it rained all day - again - and I had appointments that kept me from getting out in the field anyway; I dipped into the Leech Lake vault for tonight's photos. As you can see, Minnesota and Iowa share some of the same birds and mammals, such as this vocal black-capped chickadee whistling "here Petie" in the woodlands near Leech Lake.

Thank you for your kind visits and comments dear friends. I appreciate them all:-)))

"Hey, where's my head?!" It was another cold and rainy day here in Winneshiek County so black-capped chickadees were ready to bury their heads in the sand.

I love these little treasures .... I added a light texture.

Thank you for your visits and comments dear friends, wishing everyone a peaceful weekend 🌹❤️

Record low temperatures for March 15 were set around northeast Iowa last night, dipping down to -1 F. This chilly chickadee was certainly glad to see some glowing morning sun!

We've got another major winter storm and cold snap moving into Winneshiek County starting tonight, and it seems the birds could sense that change for the worse coming since these chickadees and their friends were on a feeding frenzy today.

This fluffy little chickadee was content to sit still and fend off the bitter winter cold by warming up its feathers in that welcome winter sunshine.

This charming little chickadee was feeling quite chipper on this cloudy and cool morning since the meteorological calendar says it is finally spring!

It rained steady from dawn to dusk with a change to snow expected tonight. This drenched little chickadee was still cheerful enough to wish everybody "Happy Spring!"

I'm pleased to see a strong population of black-capped chickadees at Lake Meyer Park this winter. Sometimes you can count six or more at once without getting confused by their quick movements.

This upbeat black-capped chickadee was holding its head high even though the weather conditions were crummy.

This black-capped chickadee was out enjoying a beautiful sunny day in northeastern Iowa, when the temperature actually rose above the freezing point to qualify for a genuine January thaw!

This little chickadee must have been just as curious as me to see how some skunk cabbage flowers survived the recent snowstorm at a local swamp, since it was sitting right there when I arrived.

Loves His Peanut butter Chickadees may be found in any habitat that has trees or woody shrubs, from forests and woodlots to residential neighborhoods and parks, and sometimes weedy fields and cattail marshes. They frequently nest in birch or alder trees.

"Brrr, it's really cold out here!" With the wind chill factored in this morning, it felt like -21 C or -6 F. Nippy on the nose for sure!

I take them for granted because they are always around, but I would really miss them if they disappeared.

I haven't been out and about much recently but have been photographing birds off and on in my yard. Black-capped Chickadees, White-crowned Sparrows, and California Scrub-jays are frequent visitors to my yard now. IMG_2178

Chickadees looked a little scruffy earlier in August, but now as September arrives they are finally decked out with all their warm winter feathers.
