I can’t imagine anyone not being enchanted by black-capped chickadees. These nervous little creatures make their presence known before they can be seen with their familiar whistle, “fee-bee-ee,” which they repeat constantly. Their song is very similar to the song of their European cousin, and their high-pitched sound was very familiar to me in the pine forests of Europe.
I chose a Norway pine for the background of this painting since it is so widespread in the United States. I enjoy the harmony of the bright brown of the pine cones and the green of the pine needles, along with the pale colors of the birds, and it gave me great satisfaction to do this painting.
