Black-capped Chickadee

The congenial chickadee, certainly one of Minnesota's mainstay birds during the winter and a splendid way to start off the new year on iNaturalist. This bird has been one of my personal favorites since childhood. As evidence of this long-standing admiration, around thirty years ago, as a college student, I made a bookmark, which I still have and use, from a piece of birchbark, adding a simple ink drawing of a chickadee and this tiny, two-line poem by Henry David Thoreau (with his spelling).

The chicadee
Hops near to me.
