Practising Black-capped Chickadees of the Vermilon River, A Post to Macro Monday.









I think this fellow has heard about the Olympics and wants to be a leading contender in the acrobatic competition. Did you notice how he ended up as he started out? I think a 10 is in order.

  2. I think its a cross between the Long-taled Tit and Marsh Tit in England.

  10. Lovely shots. As Bob said, they look rather like our British tits, such as Marsh Tits.
