Black-Capped Chickadee Babies

This gallery contains 2 photos. A couple of the Black-Capped Chickadees — recently named Vancouver’s city bird of 2015 — had twins earlier this spring. Even though they are about the same size as mom and dad now, they are still being fed by beak and nowhere as noisy. Here’s one of them with “bedhead”, captured on the apple tree in the backyard on a warm June 1st afternoon.

This is the other, captured on May 26, nesting down in the same apple tree for the night. Neither one is particularly fussy about having a camera lens so close to them, and even the parents aren’t being possessive, either.

  1. I’m glad they chickadees are so accommodating. I once heard if chickadees were any larger (considering their attitude) they’d run all the other birds off. They are spunky!


Your comments are like chocolate for my soul ... I can never get enough of them! Bonus brownie points for witty comments! I love a good turn of phrase. :)
