A black-capped chickadee risks perching on a blackberry stem. This is one of two species of chickadee found in British Columbia, the other being the more common chestnut-backed chickadee.

Taken near Gibsons, Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada.

Camera: Canon EOS Rebel T3i
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L @ 400mm

I’m a retired stationary engineer who lives on British Columbia’s scenic Sunshine Coast, which although on the mainland, can only be accessed by water or air – just the way we Coasters like it!

Wildlife and nature photography is my hobby and passion. My primary camera is a Nikon D90 and most of these photos are taken with a Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm VR lens.

I appreciate and try to answer all sincere comments.

    Coal tit, Willow tit or Marsh tit, I never know the difference … what a superb capture.

  • Thank you very much Marilyn. Yes, the chickadee is indeed a member of the tit family, hence the similarity.
