Don’t you just love that little ‘chickadee-dee-dee’ song? As the weather changes and all the summer birds have gone south, who is left but our faithful little chickadees? I don’t think they make any less or any more noise than they do all summer – it’s just that they are about the only birds at the feeder right now.
Hubby is the bird man around here. He makes sure they have seeds and suet all winter long and I think they love him for it. I know I do.

This is wonderful…I love the little chickadees, but the ones around here are so skittish, I don’t think I could ever get one to land on my hand. Great capture!!
Amazing photos! Wonderful!

Wow…I never dreamed a chickadee would light on someone’s hand, let alone eat from it! I LOVE these photos!
Wow, this series is incredible. I am crazy about the second one with the wings flapping. Breathtaking!

I’m in love. I say “chickadee dee dee” over and over all day long sometimes. they are my constant companion, never mind the season or time of day. they wake me in the morning and put me to sleep at times. I love this bird, and your photos are extraordinary. thanks for capturing this little guy and elevating him to where he belongs – within reach!!! happy day to you Barb. this was pure pleasure.
Wow, what an awesome shot of the little bird on your hubby’s hand.They are beautiful
Wow, how trusting is this little guy.
Oh what beautiful little birds they are! This is a wonderful edit. How sweet that they will come right onto your hubby’s hand.
Barb, these photographs are AMAZING!!! There is so much love in each of them. I could not choose a favorite it I had to.
Thank you so much for sharing these at The Creative Exchange.

Just wonderful !
Wonderful blue tones in these shots. And what sweet photos of the chickadee.
Great captures!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Wonderful captures! I love these little birds too.

How fun to be able to feed them by hand, and chickadees are such wonderful birds, aren’t they?
Hubs is so serious! It must take great concentration to call in the birds. These are great photographs, wonderful to see. I think one of the great things humans do is to maintain their bird feeders and put up bird houses.
Awesome post here, thanks for sharing!
Sweet hand feeding photos!!!
Love Primrose ,-)
Wonderful images of a beautiful moment… it’s a great experience.

How cool, I have been trying to get a chickadee to come to my hand. Great shots! Have a nice day!
Pieces of Sunshine says
Wonderful. Lovely photos of special moments.
Great shots! Chickadees are the least shy, most friendly little birds in my garden. I love having them around in winter.

Your newest follower! W.O.W.! I don’t know what’s more jaw dropping – the bird on your hubbies hand, or the photo you took! I love them all, but the one with the bids wing movement is just absolutely something special! Without seeing others in the link parties you have this in, you should win every single one! So rare and amazing – thanks for the share! Pinned!
