Black-capped Chickadees

Don’t let this behavior happen at your Thanksgiving table! Two black-capped chickadees in New York were fighting over sunflower seeds, and pro photographer Marie Read was there. “Usually the chickadees visited this sunflower seed head one at a time, but when two arrived together they would often get into an argument. I focused on the sunflower and fired whenever the two birds started bickering,” the New York resident writes. She used a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and a 500mm lens.
