I noticed in the 2nd photo that he evidentally uses his tongue to get the seeds!

Hi Carol, nice shots. Is that a Downy or Hairy are something else?

JJ; it's either a Downy or a Hairy. I'm pretty sure it's a Downy, but I can't tell by my bird books, as they are so similiar.:confused:

Here's a couple of a Mountain Chickadee. He had an injury to his head, but appeared to be fine.

My guess is the Downy. Nice shots of the Chickadee Carol. :)

Thanks JJ! I was glad to catch this little fellow with the camera.

Going by two of my "bird" books, I agree that it must be a Downy. Beautiful bird!

Cute visitors Carol! Two of my favorites birds (I want to say Hairy because the bill seems too long for a Downy, but I could be totally wrong!)

Thanks Saly. On another forum someone also mentioned that they thought it was a Hairy, because of the length of the beak!

I absolutely love the little chickadees. In the mornings, when I'm bringing the birdfeeders out to hang, they jump on the feeders while I'm carrying them to get their first seed!:)

Good to have birds around, they reassure nature is thriving around you. Don't they, Carol? Nice shots of both birds, look forward to seeing more.
