Born to be Cheeky

This gallery contains 3 photos. A laugh-out-loud moment: a young Black-Capped Chickadee cocks its head as it follows my camera. I like its spiky ‘do, and the rapt attention it bestows on me. It’s like photographing a 5-year-old human child … such curiosity!


Clearly, this little bird is aware of its good looks. Even if it’s simply sitting around, getting a good sunbath. One could say that it knows how to court attention!


It’s not always totally absorbed with the external stimuli I provide … here is a photo of it preening in the sun. Photographed on July 20.
