It reached 90 degrees yesterday afternoon, which is not all that hot, really, especially considering the sorts of temperatures we were getting last summer. But it was apparently way too hot for our local Black-capped Chickadees, who showed up in the Red Cedar tree outside our apartment's window yesterday, panting.
And of course, I couldn't help taking pictures of these adorable birds trying to keep cool. (Consider this a companion post to the Tufted Titmouse photo shoot from the other day.)
It's so hot!
Well, you do what you can, right? (Right!)
Poor fellows. But at least they seem to have picked up a meal on their way through the tree, and it's always fun to watch punk chickadee antics. :)
