It seems all the photo’s I take are on the edge of exposure and motion blur. This was at dusk and below the chickadee doesn’t linger, most shots are just lucky shooting these guys manually.

return of the Birdman

It’s been exactly a year since the departure of my tit mouse friend. This chickadee landed in my hand six times today. Nothing like it!

This past January photo, such a tiny bird, not easy to photograph. I’m sorry to say I can’t tell if these photos from the past couple of years is my bird in hand?
