We were out hiking last weekend and spotted a baby chickadee. My husband's favorite bird. This is a baby sitting on a log outside his nest. It is a whole lot easier getting shots of baby birds than adults. They are just waiting around hungry and vulnerable to predators and eager photographers.
The nest was a hole in a near by tree. See the hole?
Feeding. Thanks Mom!
Sitting... Dull day.
For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday And have you seen my latest illustrated map? There's a toucan on it for bird lovers. Check it out on my last post or click here!
Great captures!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Lovely serie of photos!
A great series of photos and lovely to be able to watch a young bird like that.
Smashing shots of the youngster Sharon.
Cute series on the Chickadee fledgling!
Awwww, what a cutie! I do love chickadees and their call is constantly present in this part of the country. :-)
Chickadees are super duper adorable. Fluffy cutie pies with little black hats!

Oh, they are such fur babies! Well, feather babies. :-) You got some great shots.
Wonderful captures.. so like our Great Tits in the UK.
I adore chickadees too. When we had feeders, it always seemed like they expended more energy than they took in -- darting in for one sunflower seed at a time. they are really fun to watch and how neat to see the babies.
What a cutie!
How sweet! Lovely shots!
what precious, precious photos!
...oh lucky you; indeed a delightful little bird and you picked up such wonderful photos
My favourite bird too and so cute.
Great, now I can't get W.C. Field's voice out of my mind :)
Sweet little thing!
Oh my gosh, chickadees are the cutest! Especially the shot of him fluffing his feathers!
lucky you to get such good shots, he posed for you!! ..have a great day! cheers.
nice pictures - they do look so unbelievably helpless. I often think about the speed at which bird grow when they come out of the egg - especially when I band waders down here that were eggs in Alaska and Siberia 5 months beforehand!

Such a cool series!! A few weeks ago while I was sitting outside reading, I had a chickadee land on the arm of my chair, & then hop over, & give MY arm a couple of soft, inquisitive pecks before he hopped back, & just sat there, staring at me for about 10 minutes. VERY cool experience!!
such sweet little one. Can´t remember seeing a young of this species. Great to see yours.
What beautiful shots - it's so amazing to see all that feather detail, like the little dishevelled bits sticking up from his head in that last photo :D
