The first three photos are of the Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla) while the last is of the Chestnut-backed Chickadee (Poecile rufescens). The first weighs a mere 0.39 ounces while the latter is about 0.34 ounces, rather small birds indeed. Enjoy these photos! I'll focus on water birds in the next post.

I've long had a fascination with birds, especially the small ones. Perhaps my father raising canaries when I was young had something to do with that. Well, it would have played a small part. I've had an interest in nature and the life in it since at least age three. This interest just became more focused as I got older. These photos were taken on a trip to Vancouver's Stanley Park on Sunday. Its difficult getting these little birds in the frame long enough to take a photo but with anticipating their movements, it is possible.
