This adorable little chickadee fluttered around me with absolutely no fear at all. That is why they are one of my all time favorite birds. Their curiosity when it comes to people is well known and I was fortunate enough to be a witness. I smiled from ear to ear as the little one sat and stared and gave me endless photo ops for what seemed like minutes (it was probably more like 30 seconds). They are easily attracted by a bird call CD. I’ve had much success with this tactic. This was taken in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and 70-300mm zoom lens.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

  • Yeah I’m too far north to see the Carolina chickadees. They are hard to tell apart and the two species actually intermix in the few areas where you see both so that must be even harder to identify them. LOL
