Black-capped chickadee

Poecile atricapillus


The chickadees in this area were amazingly bold. They flew right in front of me and fluttered in place (just a few inches from my face!) and generally seemed annoyed that I wasn't giving them food, haha. I guess they've been feeding them in that area, since there were also lots of seeds on the ground.

Wow, the ones around here are quite skittish. I'm used to the gray jays being that brazen! Sounds like an interesting experience.
