|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This bird was flying with a baby of his. They stopped next to me unafraid. Probably because the baby needed time to stop and rest. These birds hang around Black Capped Chickadees in the summer. In the winter they go south.|

This is one bird that I always look forward to seeing in the winter months here in Ohio. They seem to disappear in the summer, but I can always count on their return when the snow starts to fly. Thank you for sharing this close-up image.

What a cute bird and precise focus. I like pictured scene a lot. Tree branches on aFG and BG create a nice natural pattern. Exposure of the image, details of the bird, lights on the BG are wonderful. Well done and best regards.
