Chickadee, 2004. A chickadee jumps a sunflower seed in my back yard birdfeeder. Chickadee, S330 on a tether, my back yard. The chickadee on the left didn’t want to share the branch, so the other one tried to escape by hiding under the branch.  The correct part of the scene is not visible or in focus, but still interesting. Backyard chickadee, 2006.

Chickadee at suet feeder, Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary (Mass Audubon), Marshfield, Mass. 2004. Chickadee, Lock & Dam 18, Gladstone, Illinois, February 2011. Chickadee found something of interest in the snow, Lock & Dam 18, Gladstone, Illinois, February 2011. I have experimented with various ways to remotely capture images of birds.  On 4/21/2002, I was able to get this image of a black-capped chickadee at my backyard feeder in Massachusetts with a Canon S330 Elph connected by a 30-foot-long USB cable to my computer.
