Black-capped chickadee

We brought a small bag of black sunflower seeds to the Stony Swamp area so we could feed the chickadees and I could spend some time with my zoom lens.

And now it’s Monday. On the agenda: to see a guy about a shooting range. But more on that later.

For now, check out the chickadee slide show!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
