Feeding Chickadees at Mer Blue, near Ottawa...


YOU HAVE TO START THEM YOUNG
This is my four-year old grandson, Malcolm, hand-feeding Chickadees at Mer Blue, near Ottawa with his sisters, on the first day of 2017.   If there is one bird that makes a Canadian winter bearable, it is the Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla).
small black and white bird
in this winter coldly absurd
your call's sweetly heard
