This must be one of the best days of the year for a chickadee. Abundant seeds. Warm sunshine. The chicks are raised and on their own.
This little guy was on the sunflower stems outside my living room window this morning. He didn’t mind my camera too much and I got several close shots. He was making quiet chirps as he hopped and gathered seeds.
Today is the last full day of summer – tomorrow at 3:40 pm GMT is the autumnal equinox.
