Canon City Riverwalk hopping with chickadees

I birded the Sell's Lake entrance to the Canon City Riverwalk this morning and was greeted by multiple "dee-dee-dee" calls from several Mountain Chickadees including the one in tnese pics. They were performing their acrobatic foraging in the cottonwoods and other trees accompanied by a single Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

Check out the toenails that show-up fairly well in these pics--good thing these are small and sweet birds as those are some large (proportionally) and sharp looking.

Then this evening I walked my dogs at the far east end of the Riverwalk where the calls of some Black -capped Chickadees filled the air. This has been a beautiful and mild fall--temps all week got into upper 70's to mid 80's. SeEtta
