Up close & personal with Mountain Chickadees

At least one pair of Mountain Chickadees continues to frequent my feeders. They still seem to have a preference for safflower seeds though they often try to get nutmeat treats from the peanut pieces that I feed (it does take more work to break off sections of the peanut pieces, mostly halves). This chickadee has a safflower seed in its beak but it can be seen better by double-clicking on the pic to enlarge it--this also allows viewing of the facial feathers up very close. I will post more pics this week-end but have to get some sleep as we have the Canon City Bird-N-Nature Expo in the morning. SeEtta


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
