Chickadees are the most precious looking birdies to me. Yes, I am getting a little addicted to the birds, thanks to you, first the butterflies and now look what you have done!

Hi Leedra,
It's amazing how these little birds go for a seed that is too big for them, hold it down and open it to get to the 'goodie'!

Now, don't you feel sorry for getting Darla addicted to birding!!

Yes, this is like an optical illusion - a chickadee with a very long beak - so cute!

So funny..the little bird choosing the bigger seed..I guess we all bite off more than we can chew,,,sometimes!! But what are dreams made of..if not high hopes!
Great photo, Leedra!

This photo is cute and made me laugh! Sometimes I think they pick up the biggest seed to try to make their beak look bigger! :-)

Hugs,

Leedra, what a great picture of the Chickadee. I wonder how long it took him to get to the point where he could actually eat from that seed.

What a capture! Looks like it bit off more than it could chew--in a manner of speaking.
