Photographer's Note

Hilton Falls is a natural treat with great hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails, a conservation area close to Toronto where I usually go for cross-country skiing.
These little birds, “black capped chickadee” (Poecile atricapillus) –I will start giving more details using the good example of Milloup.

The little birds come to your hand and they will take any seed you offer. The sensation is great. The distinguishing vocalization "chick-a-dee-dee" of the Black-capped Chickadee is one of the most complex vocalizations in the animal kingdom.
The chickadee is largely an insect eater but being in constant motion and will appreciate lots of high energy food. In my case they enjoyed the sun flower seeds. They will typically take one seed from your hand, fly away and perch nearby to eat it. Chickadees will visit your “feeder” one at a time, while other chickadees wait nearby for their turn, usually.
But sometime, if you offer them sun-flower seeds especially in winter time, you can have the chance to see (and feel) two of these light-weighted birds come to eat from your hand.
