[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When these guys aren't landing on my camera they are foraging for seeds on the ground. They are one of only a few birds here in Sudbury Canada that stay all year around. They make about 5 destinct sounds that vary in pitch. One of the sounds is a whining noise that seems to specifically mean it sees food. They feed easy if anyone wants to take them small sunflower seeds.

hello Trevor

what a wonderful photo of the Black-Capped Chickadee
on his singing action, very fine POV and framing,
very beautiful luminosity, superb focus with excellent
sharpness and details, the bird on his singing action and
the catch-light at the eye is rendering the photo mre beautiful,

i had an uncle that lived in Sudbury for more then 20 years,
he worked to Inco (i think is Inco),
i have passed a good month in Sudbury in summer 1979,
good old days when i was 11 years old...
my uncle come from work and then we where going fishing...
