I am pretty sure these black-capped Chickadees are exhibiting “breeding display”  as they puff up their bodies and spread their tail feathers, all the while chirping merrily away.

  1. I’ve just been introduced to these little cuties in my own backyard, although I have no stunning photos like this to prove it. Funny thing, many years ago during a visit to family in Germany, I awoke to what I thought was someone’s alarm clock that kept going and going and going. It was a repetitive high-pitched fee-bee. Later in the day I heard it again and realized it was a bird, but no one knew what bird it was. It has taken me all these years to suddenly recognize that same call near my own house. I was delighted when I finally saw a chickadee in mid fee-bee! They are delightful.
