Adorable is Back Again … in Spades!

This gallery contains 4 photos. Back are the Chestnut-Backed chickadees, in as many days. Here is one of the babies on the favourite perch of our smaller feathered friends — the trusty ol’ grapevine. Photographed on June 15, 2014.

Chestnut-Backed Chickadee from Behind

In the fall and winter of last year, I saw maybe two of these, and now they’ve become regular visitors, supplanting even the Eurasian collared doves and the Black-Capped Chickadees.

In fact, I think the Chestnut-Backed chickadees have stolen the crown of adorability from their monochromatic cousins. Especially with such attentive gazes. Even if they are cleaning out the suet feeder every day.

Chestnut-Backed Chickadee Looks Right

Something this cute has no right looking so reproachful! It seems to be challenging me with the question, “You want a piece of me?” Why, yes, dear. All of you! 🙂
