Rescued baby Black-capped Chickadee

black-capped chickadee

Caretaker's note: Small birds sometimes make their way into the barn and get trapped. In trying to escape they often fly into window and fall stunned onto the floor. This young chickadee was picked up and for quite some time wouldn't leave the rescuer's open hand. Finally, as he tried to get the bird to hop onto an outdoor table it flew up onto and perched on his nose - long enough for several "self portraits with chickadee" to be taken.
