Carolina Chickadee Fledgling

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 26 July 2018 in Animal & Insect.

I was sitting outside yesterday during a dry spell and this little guy landed at the bird bath near me and sat there for the longest time. At one point he looked like he was sleeping and kept teetering back and forth. I was afraid that he was going to go head first into the water. He finally flew away.

I love chickadees. I've had them eat out of my hand. I hope this poor little guy had a drink before he flew away.

A sweet shot of this cute youngster. I guess he needed a nap. Nice use of DoF for the soft background.

A beautiful portrait of the youngster. He looks similar to the Black-capped Chickadees we have in our backyard year-round.
