Thanks, Marcelo! We have cold weather in California although not as cold as the East Coast. The sun was out when I was taking these pictures. I could feel the chill as the temperature was down to about 38 deg F that morning. It was a lucky day that I had shots of 2 little birds on the same day.

Thanks, Mugmar! The little birds are fast hopping around and hard to track. I am extremely lucky to get 2 birds on the same day. It is sunny around here in the last few days but very cold at night. Six people died in the Bay Area in the last few days because of the cold weather.

Thee are fine pictures, but there are no Chickadees here - those are Black-throated Gray Warblers.
