Black-capped Chickadee Young

Black-capped Chickadee Poecile atricapillus
Young in Nest
26 June 2013

    Not the greatest pictures to be sure, but we wanted to record an image as quickly as possible and close up the nest box. As you can see "our" chickadee chicks are developing well and emergent feather tracts are clearly visible. For at least two days the parents have been delivering sunflower seed hearts along with the normal protein fare to their young. It won't be long before these young birds fledge.
