Feathered Friends: Chickadee

in #amazingnature2 months ago (edited)

My entry to @featheredfriends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 8 announced by @nelinoeva and hosted by @melinda010100.

The peanuts I put out for the Blue jays have attracted this cute little black capped chickadee.

Here the little bird is with a whole peanut in his mouth.

The peanuts are lined up on the deck railing as a treat for the Blue jays when the temperature drops below freezing.

The chickadees stay around all year. I seemed to have captured this one in mid-air or is he jumping for joy to get the peanuts before the Blue jays.

Mostly the chickadees stay in the forest but I will hear their song, “Chick-a dee-dee-dee” when walking there. This little one comes looking for food when we start getting the colder temperatures in winter.

This photo for soaring contest.

I do leave bird seeds out for the birds but this cute little black and white bird with the large head and tiny body seems to like bread crumbs and peanuts. I even saw him taking the dry cat food out of the feral cat’s dish.

I’m calling the chickadee a he but I’m not sure if he is a he. The male chickadee has a larger black bib than a female chickadee and I don’t have another one to compare.

These birds are always a joy to see, whether female or male.

Melinda @melinda010100, I don’t know why this didn’t post to hive-10644 as I posted though ecency and tapped feathered friends community.

The chickadee what a cute name for the little fella he remains me of the jumping jack sparrow you caught great photos of him jumping mid-air 👍

Haha thanks @kohsamui99 he does look like a jumping jack.

Specially modified body springs 😆

Rounded little ball of feathers, all wrapped up in cuteness with that little hop it does for you.

Lovely having birds around all your through @redheadpei

So true Joan @joanstewart I love seeing the birds around. Thankfully some stay around all year even in the colder season right now.

Excellent photos in motion, it is a very beautiful bird

Thanks for your nice comment @cryptoxicate.

Have a wonderful day.

That's a lovely little bird, Jo 😁
I love the photos when it jumps - looks like it would be hovering over the wooden plank or railing 😃


Cheers with !BEER and !WINE

Hannes, I don’t know why the chickadee was hovering like that on the deck railing. I never saw anything like it before.

Another visitor this afternoon. A young raccoon was checking out the food dish left out on the back deck for Friday. He cleaned up any leftovers and then headed back toward the forest.. :)

We had a snowfall today which left the roads slushy...being sort of mixed with rain. More snowfall this month than January.

Thanks dear Hannes for reblog, generous tip and goodies. Much appreciated. 🙂🤗

Have a wonderful Frigg’s Day.

Good morning Jo,

I think you have pressed the shutter button in the right moment. So the moment when the bird jumped got frozen 🙂

Hey, cool, Peppy has sent his son to look if you are well and if you still care for the animals 😃

It's still warm and dry here. I'm working today and tonight, but then it's weekend and I am in home office next week 😁

Wishing you also a wonderful Frigg's Day dear Jo 🤗🌞


Cheers and !BEER

Haha Hannes, I better keep on keeping on feeding the wild animals passing by if the spirit of Peppy is watching.🐱

I would like to see a stretch of warm weather. We had a real cold night last night at -15C but now warming up this morning. This is one of the coldest nights we had this winter.

Wishing you a warm and sunny weekend and a !BEER to relax dear Hannes.🤗☀️

Peppy is watching you Jo 😄

We have had a very warm week and the forecast for next week looks the same, but before we had even colder nights down to -20 C and about -10 during the days. So I know how you feel 😉

Thanks for the wishes, I hope you have a warm and sunshiny weekend, dear Jo 🤗🌞

Thanks Pix!

It is really cute birdie and nicely captured in the air. 😀
Birds seems to like cat's biscuits, like jthe ackdaws and crows I have seen stealing ferral cats' food too.

Thanks @nelinoeva. I always love seeing the chickadees. I was surprised they could carry away a peanut or dry cat food in their little beaks,

This also amazes me how they can eat peanuts.

That is a pretty amazing capture! I have no idea why the community selection didn't work for you! Thanks for tagging me so that I got to see it, though!

Thanks Melinda @melinda010100. I hadn’t used ecency for awhile. I was sure hive-106444 came up under the first tag I should have checked again before I clicked publish.

Oh how cute!

Thanks @violetmed. They are sweet looking little birds.🙂

Such cute and funny photos of the Black Capped Chickadee Jo!! I think you caught him mid hop and it came out great! 💕
Tip

Thanks so much. I'm a little late in replying Dee.💕. The little chickadee is still coming by every morning. I broke up some peanuts this morning and put them on the deck railing. The blue jays had a good feed but the little chickadee can have the crumbs that he likes.

Hope you are having a good week Dee.

You're very welcome Jo and that is perfectly okay as it can take me a while to get to replies too. Right now as I type this I can hear that blue jay outside calling..lol. Of course I have no way of knowing that it's the same one but my mind says it is and he is calling for some peanuts. 🤨😂

Haha Dee. The blue Jays are pretty darn smart. I have one staring at me through the window knowing I will put out some peanuts when I see him..❤️
