“Black-Capped Chickadee on Branch” – Lynde Shores

Black-Capped Chickadee at Lynde Shores

There’s something strangely calming about these little  birds, so common in Southern Ontario. Which strikes me odd, since they are constantly flitting about and are rarely still.

In fact, they seem a bit nervous most of the time. Perhaps it’s moments like the one, captured above, where the chickadee is resting briefly on a branch that gives that sense of peace? A bit like many of our days, where we move rapidly from task to task and take a brief moment to pause.

Do we appear calm to our peers who also long for rest, or does our outward appearance betray the fact that, as we pause, we are only considering our next task?
