    Nice! I’ve found these difficult to photograph. They make a lot of noise, so they’re easy to spot, but they just don’t hold still. 😉

    • Thanks! This one was moving quite a bit, too, but still hung around longer than I expected it to. It also let me get closer than I figured it would. I didn’t get right up to it, of course, but way closer than any of the other birds will let me get to them.
      The chickadees have probably been the absolute hardest for me to photograph. About the time I get the camera pointed at them, they’re gone. 🙂
      Have a blessed day.

        Those Chickadees are quick–grab and go! Those Pileated Woodpeckers seem to go to the opposite side of the tree where I can’t see them.

        • This woodpecker kept doing that, too, at least until it got to that tree across the road. It stayed at that base for a little while, then went further up the tree where I got its profile shot. It was evading my camera pretty good while here in our yard.
          Those little Chickadees are something else. They hold their own pretty good with the cardinals here in this yard. 🙂
          Have a blessed day.
