Default New Species at My Feeder - Boreal Chickadee

I've been feeding birds at this house for 20 years, so a species never before seen at my feeders is noteworthy. Today I saw a boreal chickadee (Poecile hudsonicus) at my feeder. I wasn't able to get great pictures of it because I didn't want to spook it off before I got any. Consequently, I had to shoot through a glass door. When I opened the door to get an unobstructed picture, it flew away.

Here's the best of my pictures:

You can google boreal chickadee for better pictures.

The common chickadee we see at our feeder is the black-capped chickadee (P. atricapillus).

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill for wisdom and do not confuse strength for skill. Paul Skvorc
