Default Chickadee...FZ40

Hello,
A pair of chickadees excavated a nest in a dead branch of a maple tree not far from the house last spring.
Here's a picture of the female on a nearby branch fully fluffed up after she tried to scare away a cat below.

Somehow that cute little bird doesn't look so scary!

Great capture!

Thank you jjdog2, csa, and catalex54.

This is my first upload and I knew it was on the noisey side.

The light was so-so, but I tried to get as fast a shutter speed as possible because I expected flight. It turns out that the flight pictures I got were taken on a Nikon D40x at a much faster shutter speed.

JJdog, I'm with you: chickadees are my favorite, too. I watched this pair for 6 weeks (they hung around for a bit). They started excavating on April 24th and fly-away day was June 7: there were 7 fledgings and I got shots of all of them as they emerged.

Tried to attach one, but got the dreaded "upload error" 3 times.

I'll try later,
Thanks again,
Bob

Very cute! We don't get those in Southern California....
I hope you get to photograph some eggs and baby chicks.
