Another close-up-Boreal Chickadee

Friends, another closeup of a chickadee, this is a boreal chickadee, a small bird that occupies the tamarack and black spruce bogs of northern Minnesota.  His coloring is very different from our more common black-capped chickadee, but I love all the feathered textures in this image.  They love suet and will come to an undisturbed feeder like those in the Sax-Zim bog.  So how do you like this tiny bird?, til Tomorrow MJ
