The black-capped chickadee.

One of the most ubiquitous birds of winter is the black capped-chickadee. It can be found year round and has to be one of the friendliest bird among all the birds that one can encounter. In this case, I literally stalked some of the birds to be as close as possible to them, but I did not want them to see me. For as soon as they see a human being they will come to you, no doubt in expectation of getting food from you. In one case one of these birds even landed on my 300mm lens!
