This week’s photo, taken June 8, 2017 from the front yard of our house in northeast Seattle, WA, features a fledgling BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE waiting to be fed by a parent.
Looking out our dining room window, I didn’t notice the tiny bird on the other side of the street until an adult Black-capped Chickadee swooped in to feed it. When it wasn’t opening its mouth wide for a food delivery, the young chickadee stood still at the edge of the curb. The drop-off to the street below must have seemed like a towering cliff to the little critter.
If you detect a frown on its face, maybe you would also be feeling a bit grumpy if you were hungry, helpless and parked at the curb.
