Black-Capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus)

This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I had purchased and installed a Nature Products 431 squirrel-proof bird feeder.  So far, it’s been working great – the birds really like it and the squirrels can’t figure out how to get to the seeds.  In fact, I liked it so much I bought a second one, which has a seed mix in it (the first one just has Black Oil Sunflower seeds).  So far, the second feeder isn’t seeing as much action, but it could be the location, since it’s a little further away from cover.

Below is a photo of one of the frequent visitors to the feeders, a Black-Capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus).  They are very polite feeders and take one seed at a time.  I’ve seen as many as 4 or 5 in the vicinity of the first feeder and a few at the second feeder.

I’ll probably make a series here on the Photo Blog with photos of the birds I’m seeing at the feeders.
