This gallery contains 2 photos. A Chestnut-backed Chickadee baby and mom in the backyard on a muggy day in mid-June. Bold as most chickadees tend to be, these newcomers exhibited no shyness with my camera just a few feet from the suet feeder the baby was on, and curious about. Mom kept up an ongoing cautionary stream of chirps and cheeps to baby, though.
I missed the tender mom-feeding-the-baby-from-her-beak moment. So this will have to do! Baby on the upper apple branch, mom looking up from a lower one. My first photos of the Chestnut-Backed Chickadees that weren’t blurs or back shots.
