I played with getting shots of the birds here that readily come to the hand for sunflower seeds. The Nuthatches and Chickadees are always enthusiastic participants. I put some seeds in the palm of my hand and tried to catch the birds on my finger tips. The built in flash on the camera worked best for this today. I extended my arm and used my 17- 85 mm lens. I posted shots of this Black-capped Chickadee and a Red-breasted Nuthatch this evening.

It's been hot, and I make sure to keep clean water for all the birds. Many of them have migrated over to the fountain, which is just fine, since the chickadees and warbers love it here where it is calm and they are surrounded by plants, trees and flowers.

Some whimsy for the weekend...

But above all [the birds] ranked the chickadee because of its indomitable spirit.


-- Tom Brown, Jr.



And from Humming-Bird to Eagle, the daily existence of every bird is a remote and bewitching mystery.


-- Thomas Wentworth Higginson



The chickadee and nuthatch are more inspiring society than statesmen and philosophers, and we shall return to these last as to more vulgar companions.


-- Henry David Thoreau

[As so often the case, the remarkable Thoreau even more relevant and accurate today, and certainly on this subject...tho he might like Bernie....;-)]

This chickadee was searching each gumball, looking for seeds.

And I thought Chickadee eye's were black.

Boreal Chickadee, Algonquin Provincial Park, Feb 23, 2017

The rain stopped and the fog lessened enough for me to get this shot of a boreal chickadee. A lifer for both Anne and me.


Poecile hudsonicus


The oldest recorded Boreal Chickadee was at least 5 years, 4 months, when it was recaptured and rereleased during banding operations in Nova Scotia.

It was a snowy day in Pennsylvania ... but as soon as the skies cleared, the chickadees and juncos were all out in my backyard. A great reminder that it's not only the big birds that are worth admiring. It was just plain fun to watch these backyard wonders.

Reduced the clarity, lowered the vibrancy and increased the saturation a little ... for a dreamier look :)

A Chickadee finds the water source.

this cute little bird flew down and pose for me while I was trying to capture some fall leaves


Baker Park-----Calgary, Alberta

While in the back yard waiting patiently for some birds to come and visit and collect some seeds to eat. When all of a sudden this beautiful Chickadee came to get it's reward of seeds, I captured the moment as it was taking off with a sunflower seed in it's mouth. I was able to capture many images of this wonderful bird that day. Hope Y'all like it.


Thanks for all your support on my work in the art of Photography. Lol: Gaston

View in large size for awesome details of this wonderful capture.


A bird in the hand


It was a slow day at Gold Bar Park, Hawrelak Park and the other trails I walked on today. I amused myself by shooting at flying ducks on the river and at Chickadees on my hand. I used my 17-85 mm for the Chickadee.

As many have pointed out, this is a photoshopped image: the head and feet from one photo, the wing (doubled and flipped) from another, The tail is from yet another photo. If I realized how appealing an image I was creating I might have taken more time with the tail.

...I have lots of chickadee's at the feeders...

These little sweeties are everywhere in my neighbourhood and I love hearing them sing.
