Description

Several Carolina Chickadees fledged the nest and all but this one flew away. This little guy reminded me of the little train that could. He tried and tried and tried to learn to fly. It wasn’t until the next morning that he was able to lift his body off the ground a few inches. By afternoon (when this photo was taken) he was able to leap up about ten inches to the top of a flagstone. He wasn’t able to leave my backyard until the third day when he took to the skies right behind his parent!
