He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler..Psalms 91: 4

We see more of these Black Capped Chickadees fly to our window feeder now and I'll have to admit they are one of my favorite birds ...I have never seen them as happy since we put up a window feeder for these little guys which they don't have to share with the squirrels. ... The squirrels and bigger song birds are content with the regular feeder that stands on a post. I also appreciate the window feeder because I can get in real close with my telephoto lens.

I needed to take this to my photo shop as there was a bit of glare reflected from the rolled window glass on the birds black bib that was distracting but by cloning over that spot it eliminated the camera information which I will include below.
