Chickadees and Apple Trees

Chickadees and Apple Trees
With my temporary absence in Melville taking me out West for the summer, I am relying on my mom to keep the blog going over the next few months and by the looks of her recent photos - she will not be disappointing!

The first two pictures are of the apple tree saplings down in the orchard! While only small, the lush green colour and smell will surely be attracting deer to Melville, Mom will have her eyes open for Bucky and keep him and any other four legged wanderers away from the ripening yumminess!

Below, mom captured a fantastic shot of a little Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) that unfortunately had a run in with the window on the house! Interestingly, chickadees mate for life (Wild Birds), so likely it's partner will be along to heal it back to health, otherwise mom will be busy caring for this little guy too and keeping him clear of any future window run-ins!
