Black Cap - Smap round 78 entry

in Feathered Friends2 months ago

I've been trying to catch some bright finches that have been visiting, but so far they've eluded the camera. This week's "Free" theme hit at a great time, because I had a few pics still sitting on the camera. It included these and a couple good squirrel pics I'll save for later.

This is a Black Capped Chickadee. One of the most frequent visitors to our feeders, and it seems the least shy. They will often come to the feeders while we are sitting a few feet away.

Here's my entry for the contest.

and here's a couple others snapped during the session.

Shot with Sony A7RIV and 100-400 lens, light crop.
I just love the 60MP resolution on this lens that allows me to crop and still have a nice image.
Now, back to the finch hunt.


Dee-dee-dee! 😄 I love the hoarse calls of birds of this genus.

Yes! Me too! These, Cardinals, Doves, and Quails my favorite so far I think.

It's my first time hearing a bird named Black Capped Chickadee. Anyways, goodluck with the contest... I'm planning to join in this contest but I haven't find an entry for this yet.

Well this is an easy one. Find a bird, shoot a pic or find a previous pic unposted! Jump in, still plenty of time left.

Aww, such a cutie. 🙂
Awesome shot with the seed in the beak. It must be fun watching them feeding.

Good luck with the finch hunt.

Tks. I spotted them briefly today, but not enough time to grab camera between meetings. They are sneaky like that!

Ah... what a lovable Black Capped Chickadee, @ksteem!

Tks. They are some almost friendly cuties!

Congrats @ksteem for being winner!
By mistake I sent twice the Hive reward. May I ask to return 2 Hive?
So sorry for the inconvenience.

I won twice!? Woot! lol Sure, no problem. Thanks for inclusion!

Thank you so much.
