exploring our amazing natural spaces

Full feathered flight

It’s tough catching a Chickadee in full feathered flight. In this case I set the shutter speed high (ie 1/1000 of a second) and also continuous, pointed the camera, closed my eyes and hoped for the best. These 1/2 ounce birds spend all day at the feeder eventually caching the sunflower seeds throughout the yard. An abandoned bird’s nest on the other side of the house is a favorite spot.

    Love that you captured the wing span of such a tiny creature. A person could watch these little birds all day long. They are so busy and full of life. Thanks for taking the time to catch this snapshot of a chickdee’s life. Hugs, Marilyn
