Black-Capped Chickadee
Parus atricapillus

Description -
This small bird can be identified by its black cap and bib and white cheeks. The back is grey with white underparts; the wings are edged with white. Their characteristic call is a buzzy "chick-a-dee-dee-dee".

Distribution -
The black-capped chickadee ranges throughout all of Canada. They inhabit deciduous and mixed forests and open woodlands, often wintering in suburban areas.

Biology -
The black-capped chickadee feeds on insects, seeds and berries. They prepare their nest with grass, fur, plant down, feathers and moss in a hole in a rotten tree stump, a natural cavity or a bird box. This bird is constantly active, either hopping, clinging or hanging from tree branches.

Hi JeanPaul

A cute presentation with lovely composition and great POV. This time it just seems like the dark hood of the bird blended a bit with the dark BG. Unfortunately I don't think there was much you could have done about it unless you waited for the bird to sit on a different perch so that you maybe had an alternative BG to work with.

Anyway, good work and TFS.

Nice composition, surroundings.
A little soft, seems like focus is on branch.
Good subject. Nice complimenting frame.

Nice bird picture, JP.
I find the use of ambient light quite effective in this shot.
TFS and take care.

Hi Jeanpaul.
Your next beautiful picture. I like captured scene with its fairy-tale subject and environment. Selected DOF is very good: all interesting and significant object era in focus. BG is perfectly blurred. Expressive colour tones and darks. My best regards and TFS.
