I have been trying to get a decent picture of this bird for years.
I see them in Le Jardin des Plantes in Paris.
They don’t like to sit still and they don’t like to be close to humans, so getting zoomed and focused is no mean feat.
Anyway, this one came up on my screen saver; it’s not very good, but it’s about as good as I have ever been able to get, so I captured it, cropped it and did a little Photoshop lightening and darkening.
So I could get a pretty good look at it.
“You know” I said to no one in particular, “except for the color that looks like a chickadee”.
So I did a search “European Chickadee” and that’s what it is.
