Black Capped Chickadee
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
Please forgive my inability to respond to all comments in a timely fashion. Believe me when I say that I appreciate each and every one of them more than you could know and I will do my best over time to visit each of you and catch up with your work too. I'm so very grateful for the constant support I've received from all of you.
This sweet little black-capped chickadee is the second in a series of tapestry like bird paintings that would look lovely in a small grouping in a den or sun room, garden room or enclosed patio.
For you bird lovers out there, this information from National Geographic:
The most widespread, numerous, and geographically variable chickadee, this bird brightens winter days at bird feeders and eagerly takes advantage of nest boxes. It is curious, with little or no fear of humans, and it is famous for willingly, after a little "training," taking seeds and nuts from the hand. During fall postbreeding movements, its noisy little parties usually contain titmice, nuthatches, woodpeckers, and other species. The calls of a flock of black-cappeds in the fall often signal the presence of migrant warblers and vireos. Polytypic. Length 5.3" (13 cm).
Voice Call: chick-a-dee-dee-dee, lower and slower than Carolina. Song: a clear, whistled 2-noted fee-bee or 3-noted fee-bee-ee, the first note higher in pitch. In the Pacific Northwest some birds sing fee-fee-fee with no change in pitch.
