In one day in Heber I saw four different species of babies.  One of them was the Black-capped Chickadee.  Here’s the parent looking pretty good for all the work that’s required in feeding a baby.

And here’s the parent feeding a very hungry baby.

This baby looked exactly like the parent even though he was still little enough to be begging for food.  In China I saw many Great Tit babies.  They have yellow breasts but they come in very faded.  I think their babies are more expressive than our chickadees.

Adorable, right?

The adults are pretty spectacular so I want to save those pictures for later.  In the meantime, Birdchick linked to a great picture of a Great Tit caught in flight.
