Carolina chickadee

A few weeks ago I was walking the boardwalk at Magee Marsh when a chickadee caught my attention. It was a slow day, and so I thought I would quietly observe it. I couldn't figure out why it was staying in one spot for so long. It turns out that it was the mate of this chickadee who was in the nest with either eggs or chicks. The male was bringing food to its mate, who would pop out to see what was taking so long after a while.
