The watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye..Isaiah 52:8

My sweet Chickadee,
I know you see me...
Taking pictures of you.
It is also your choice...
To lift up your voice...
And loving it too
Of the songs to muse
When you choose.

The place this bird chose.....
Where he would pose..
For the quick camera shot....
Was with his permission...
And he picked the spot,
To complete the mission.

Poetry by me AJP

I simply adore these birds..I admire them for their cheerful personalities...No matter how cold the weather is they adapt themselves to it... Whenever I am by the feeder such as I was yesterday to take pictures they'll flit and flirt in the tree above me ..and then one will stop for an instant such as this one did to for me to get the shot...

My husband always claims and I agree, they are the smartest birds because
they always know when fresh seeds are placed on the feeder and they are the first ones there to be fed.

    You're right about the chickadees! They hop, flit and play around my feeders the entire year. This one is a handsome specimen.

    Wow, stunning against that beautiful blue background! I love sitting and watching the birds in our back yard. They certainly have their own personalities too.

    I love these little birds also, we get them here occasionally. This is a great capture of the bird, the blue background really sets the bird off : )

    They are seldom still long enough to get the pose you'd like, but this one is a winner and the detail is wonderful!! One of my favorite birds, too..
