A chickadee surrounded by autumn


This black-capped chickadee chirped and sang from the woods beside a small peninsula on Upper Kananaskis Lake.  I sat down and waited for a little while to see if it would come into view.  They are curious little birds and it didn’t take long for this one to perch among the golden leaves nearby.  With a quick check done, it soon flitted off and I continued on towards the windswept side of the lake across the peninsula.

  2. Wonderful picture! Not the colors alone. I think it shows also the charakter of the black-capped chickadee.

  3. Living in Hawaii def has its perks. Though I do miss our Maine wildlife. And I do miss these little birds, around all winter in the coldest of cold. We fed them too of course 🙃

  5. Such wonderful contrast– the sight of the little but hearty bird among golden leaves is a small gift.

  9. Sitting and waiting is more a part of photography than I realized when I started. You were well rewarded this time. The bird’s cute, and the color is gorgeous.
