I love the little Chickadee....so friendly with such energy and personality. This birds song is the most complex vocalizations of all animals....and I love when they call me "hey sweetie"
They cache food in hundreds of locations and retrieve food up to 28 days later.
The Chickadee appears in northern US and Canada. A group is called a "banditry"
The Black-Capped Chickadee is the state bird of Maine and Massachusetts.
Look at this little bird...adorable and sooooo photogenic.
I like to take the same trail ever time that I walk at Kensington so that I can see the changes every season.I start on Wildwing Trail and then cut up by the shelter and hit Aspen Trail and then carry on to the Nature Center where I have a favorite bench that I like to use to catch my breath....also where I saw Bluebirds and a female Scarlet Tanager.
Next time I go there, I will take a different trail that I like to walk in the fall. Two years ago I photographed some great turkeys there. I always remember where I saw what when I walk. "Here's where I saw the Indigo Buntings" or "This is the area of the lake that I saw the Wood ducks" or butterflies or deer or whatever. It is just so beautiful and peaceful. When I finish my walk I may be physically tired but my mind is at peace. Bless whoever makes these areas available to the public.

There are other lenses out there!
When I snapped this shot there were a flock of Canada geese landing on the lake.
