1328 Bushtit

set of 4

This is the same young bird as presented in the last set. The bird on the left is the parent. The bird on the right had already fledged, but stayed in one place for a while because his parents were bringing him food. If you have ever tried to photograph a Bushtit, you know it can be a real challenge. I feel very fortunate that I witnessed this exchange.

This cute little Bushtit had already fledged, but he wasn’t flitting all over the place like adults because he was waiting for parents to bring him a morsel. I have a second set of this little guy that shows him begging for food.

I never pass up a chance to photograph a Chickadee if it will stay in one place for 2 seconds. I only got one photo of this little guy.
