Black-Capped Chickadee

Only Characteristic
The Titmouses establish between them a kind of hierarchy (hierarchy of becquetage) according to which each bird occupies a row, founded on its degree of aggressiveness. Thus, all the birds of a group are subordinated to most aggressive, while the least quarrelsome is subjected to all the others, which are located some share between the two extremes. Generally, the males dominate the females, the adults dominate the youthful ones. The chiefs obtain the best grazing ground, the surest places against the predatory ones and not only survive longer, but have more the small ones which survive. The bird dominating threat, drives out and fights even the second, who is always on the defensive and leaves him the free way. The dominant birds seldom need to fight the seconds once the established hierarchy. The males and the females generally couple themselves according to the row: a male dominating couples itself with a dominant female and so on.

Looks like difficult conditions for this shot trying to get a clear shot through the branches, but you did good. Nice side on POV allowing for a catchlight in his dary eye. Well done. :-)

Hi Jeanpaul,
soooo cute, I love this little tits so much, we call them Tannenmeise.
I also had one in my garden, but they are so quick and hectic, never sitting still for more than a few seconds. Thanks for this nice shot
