Chestnut-backed Chickadee

Chestnut-backed chickadees have been feeding at my hummingbird feeder recently. Sometimes they peck around it, but they will also dip their bills into the feeder openings. And some oak titmice have occasionally imitated them. It really irritates the Anna’s hummingbirds. This guy was hanging, chickadee-style, under the feeder when I snapped this. He then jumped on top and started feeding.
