One bird that Deb an I REALLY wanted to see was the Boreal Chickadee. Last year at the festival I heard them and caught a quick glimpse but I wanted a good look to make it a lifer. Well, this year was the charm. Several times during Saturday's field trip we were told that the chances of a Boreal Chickadee were a sure thing. No Boreals. Finally at the last feeding station stop on Admiral Road, just a few moments after the trip leaders said it was time to move on, someone called out "Boreal Chickadee coming in." In he flew! It zoomed in and flew right into the deer rib-cage. I got many pictures of the chickadee butt barely sticking out of the bottom of the ribs. At one point it flew to a branch just a couple of feet from me. It was too close for my lens so all I could do was watch it with a happy grin!
