Verdin ~ Natures 'lil "Ham" by Kimberly Chadwick

Currently unavailable for purchase


Gilbert, AZ using a Canon Powershot SX40HS

Verdin, the only North American bird in the family Remizidae (penduline tits), is found in mesquite and thorn scrub in desert washes and riparian areas with trees. It forages chickadee-like, hanging from small branches to glean insects and spiders and theirs egg; it also feeds on nectar by piercing flowers at the base.

Unusual among American birds, Verdin builds a bulky, spherical nest only for roosting.

VOICE song a sweet, high-pitched sweet sweet sweet. Call a weak, modulated tseet; also a loud, smacking tchep

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
