A winter’s day photoessay

I think every family who lives in this area has hundreds of pictures of the kids feeding chickadees.  It is such an endearing activity that it is quite a popular thing to do when one has family or friends visiting.  And so we ventured out on this warm winter’s day, hiked into the forest and waited…
