• The Black-capped Chickadee is not an easy bird to take a good image of. there breast and belly are not very spectacular being all grey. There wing color and patterns are quite beautiful but you have to catch them in just the right position and lighting for the real beauty to see. Add to this the fact that they rarely sit still for very long and you have a bird that is hard to photograph.*

Taken near our home in Southeast Missouri.
