    Deceased chickadee in Nestbox (warning:photo)

    I peeked inside my nesting box to check if there was any activity yet this Spring, and found a dead fully feathered though quite small chickadee and four chickadee eggs. I’m assuming this may be the mom or dad chickadee. Can anyone give any ideas what might have happened and how I can prevent...

    Dead chickadee babies in nest? Why?

    About 1.5 weeks ago, I noticed sweet little cheeping coming from our bird box, the one a Carolina Chickadee pair had nested in. We were so excited! Over the last two week, that peeping has been getting louder- I swear it sounded like there were ten chicks in there! The pair of chickadees have...

    Chickadee with leg mites nesting in yard

    Hi! I noticed a Carolina chickadee (one of a breeding pair building a nest in my yard) has leg mites. Is there any natural treatment I can use on the nest to kill the mites before they spread to the baby birds, or to help the parent bird?

    Yup, it's a Black-capped chickadee. No, it's not a rare bird. Yes, you've seen millions of these on the forum, LOL. I was fortunate to get a new R7 yesterday, and I've spent the better part of the day getting to know my new piece of kit. This was shot with the old 300 F4 IS L + 1.4x EF II TC. I...

    This chickadee is making himself or herself comfortable at my feeder, sitting back on one of the perches and choosing breakfast bites, while a fall breeze catches the feathers on the back of his/her head.

    This beautiful little birds can be difficult to photograph; they are small, very fast and rarely stay in one place for more than a few seconds.

    Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good!

    It was kind of a dreary November late day here in South Carolina so I was shooting at a low shutter speed even at 1250 ISO. This little Chickadee took flight just as I tripped the shutter, producing this amazing photo. I could not replicate this in a million years! The delineation of the wing...

    Chickadee and snow

    Last week sometime the weather forecast was for a powerful storm system to pass close by us and potentially give us 10cm or more of snow. That day turned out to be mostly sunny and relatively warm. On Tuesday this week, we were supposed to have a mostly sunny and relatively warm day, and we got...

    Little fella was at our feeder frequently lately. Gave me a quick shot through the window yesterday. Lucky shot, but glad to have it. Their hyperactivity makes it difficult to get a pic, at least for me. lol.
