Black-capped Chickadee

I stopped by work Saturday to see if I could find some of those birds that thumb their noses at me during the work week.  They know that I have to work and cannot take pictures when I’m on the clock.  When I arrived I found a pair of Black-capped Chickadees cleaning out a nest in a snag, right out side of my office!

They were busy working on their new nest sight and allowed me to get in fairly close.

This shot is a little blown out, but I wanted you to see his beautiful brown iris.   Black-capped Chickadee 4-24-2010 9-48-22 AM

Last night, when I left for home I could hear a Northern Cardinal whistling right out side my office.  I found him right outside my office window. There is no winning with birds at work!

Hi Steve,
Ouah, what a chance to get these nice observation and pictures. The first one is very funny and it looks like it posed for you on the two last ones! Splendid!
