Chestnut-Backed Chickadee

Hearing the Chickadees calling in the trees above our heads we expected to look up and see either a black-capped or mountain chickadee as we had seen them earlier this day. However to our surprise we we greeted by this little Chestnut-Backed Chickadee looking down at us and hunting insects just above our heads.

The all about birds website starts their description of this bird by calling them handsome and I would have to whole heartedly agree with that.

  1. We have this adorable chickadee in Calif. and I never tire of looking at them. They have just left the nest with their little ones and are popping all around. This photo captures their curiousness and beauty well, Mike~~

    1. HI, they are not common for us to see so this was a nice surprise and quite a treat for us. Hope you do get to see one someday. They are common in the pacific northwest.
