Black-capped Chickadee

January is always tough for me. I can’t pinpoint exactly why that is, it just is. Maybe because winter is dragging on and in looking ahead, we have several more months to go. But yesterday was a sunny and somewhat warm day. I was very productive with errands in town, got a couple of shoots scheduled, and managed to take a moment to watch these little Black-capped Chickadees jump and chirp from limb to limb. I love these little interruptions during a blah winter. But alas, the lovely weather of yesterday is short-lived as the wind will be coming up tonight, terrorizing our little corner of the world. Time to button down the hatches and stack firewood for another snow.
I wish for everyone digging out of the polar vortex to have a spring-like interruption during this cold spell.
Stay warm friends!

    You too need to stay warm. We’re having a bad one.

    You stay warm, too, and take care. I just read in “Where Rivers Change Direction” (by Mark Spragg) of an adage about Wyoming weather changing if you wait five minutes or travel five miles. But that color behind the chickadee! It’s a very promising shade of blue….

    Great capture of a beautiful little bird. Stay safe and warm in the cold and snow.
