I had mentioned at the beginning of my studio tour that I had a bird feeder outside my window. As I was photographing the scenes for my studio I took a few pictures of my visitors. Today I had Black capped and Mountain Chickadees and Gold Finches as well as two Pine Squirrells who keep the neighborhood in an uproar. I nailed several dead branches to the feeder and it works perfect for getting bird photographs that I can use in paintings. This is a Mountain Chickadee distinguished by the white bar above the eye. They are also a little thinner looking bird that the Black Capped. I used to do a lot of bird art and keep intending to get back to it.
