Carolina Chickadee, Poecile carolinensis:
Horse Cove, near Gurley, AlabamaThis image was taken in my backyard earlier this year as leaves unfolded to fill the southern woodlands with a beautiful spring green. Chickadees are permanent residents and are constantly flying to and from my feeders. They, along with other species giving me plenty of opportunities to shoot. This chickadee landed atop my woodpecker feeder for a few moments allowing me to shoot a few frames.
