Winter Chickadee in Saskatchewan

First, a confession: I adore Black-capped Chickadees. I have even frozen my fingers feeding them — and while I don't like the burn of frostbite, I love the dry rasp of their claws on my skin.

The chickadees in my Regina backyard are shy and skittish. One sound, and they are gone.

The chickadees that live at St. Peter's Abbey in Muenster, Saskatchewan, however, are completely, delightfully tamed. And gorgeous.

  1. Such a cute photo... we love our chickadees too. I'd love to visit the Abbey sometime just to experience the friendly fellas!
