Hungry Chickadee

Chickadee, Kennebunk Maine.

As I mentioned in one of my Day Poems already, all the birds are eating the meal-worms I put out for the Bluebirds in this cold weather. They need the fat and protein. This chickadee has one, gripped between his foot and the twig, and it took him several minutes to tear it apart and eat it, one morsel at a time. Taken out the back deck door at about 12 feet.
