Panda Bird

My backyard is abounding with Chickadees these days.

To be sure, they come for the food, but they have been especially active at the water dishes.

With the weather getting just a bit brisker, these little black and white beauties occasionally puff up their feathers making them look like plump little Panda birds.


Chickadees are constant chatterers and, like most small birds, rarely sit still for long. ย One of the easiest places for me to capture a Kodak moment (although I guess I should say Canon moment)ย is when one drops in for a drink and perches on the edge of the dish.

Getting a picture where you can clearly see their shiny black eye can be a wee bit tricky, so I was pleased that some of these turned out.


They really are cuties!

    Chickadees are perhaps my favourite bird. They exude personality and their distinctive call when walking in the woods is delightful.

    I think they are enjoying not having as much competition at the feeder from the larger birds as they do in warmer weather.

    So true about capturing their little black eyes. The light has to be just right. Love these water bowl shots.

  8. I love the chickadee’s chatter. Great eye-lit captures, Kathy!
