Chickadee Neck Deep

Pictures I like

Black-capped Chickadees are another one of those overachiever birds. They work hard for their food and energy. I’ve always like this picture of a Chickadee neck deep in the squirrel-resistant sunflower seed feeder searching for its next meal.

They take one seed at a time and fly to a perch to peck out the meat of the seed, before flying back and repeating, over and over. They have to do this a lot to keep their oversized body energized!
