"What's all this white stuff?"
I'm now convinced that snow and birds go together extremely well, for photography at least.

Wonderful markings on his plumage, Adrian, and he looks all the better for being snapped in the snow Smile
Reached 18C today, but didn't feel anything like it with this persistent strong wind Sad Carol

i did some research-- It is considered that they arae related, but not the same bird--- The chickadee does not have the white tips all in a row -- there are at least 3 kinds of chickadees-- and several varients-- cute little critters!
