We had ice in Wisconsin, too, with the storms this week. The chickadees usually look no worse for the wear, but this morning here's one was having an especially bad hair day.

Thanks, Peggy, for capping off another 7 days of the Pasty Cam, which will be remembered as "Ice Week". And thanks to all the contributors of this week's frigid photos, especially Dan Urbanski who walks away with another WOW.

Peggy, those Chickadees were so cute I had to put them on my "Walpaper"! I have been practicing bird photography with my new camcorder! It's lots of fun. I really enjoy this site of my beloved Keweenaw! Can't wait to return this summer.

I just love the picture.Did not know that a bird could have a bad "feather" day.:)It makes you want to reach out and smooth those feathers down for him!

You mean they don't stay all winter ?
I see them while I'm up in November !

Hey, to all the Yooper Finn-glish speakers -- Happy St Urho's Day. Do that Urho dance with pride!

Here I was, trying to send my kids a reminder that they're at least a little bit Irish,when I remembered that they're a whole lot more Finnish. Happy St. Urho's day, everyone. Forget the green--go for purple!

here in Punta Gorda, on St. Urho's Day, we invite family and friends to come join us in flying kites and feasting on "grasshopper" or Key Lime pie. our "dress" for the day: purple and green swimsuits! thanks to my michigan daughter-in-law, Ginger, for introducing me to this fine page.

How appropriate and fun! The chickadee is my favorite bird. The plucky little creatures do stay ALL winter and sing their cheerful little song too. It was 90 degrees in the shade here in Donna, TX today with the orange blossoms and wisteria perfuming the air. But, I miss my fluffy little feathery friends. Thanks!!

Looks as though the chick is a little camera shy in the first photo. I have noticed many at my bird feeder in the past month.

By Nancy Nelson, WI on Saturday, March 16, 2002 - 07:47 pm:

Great shots. Never saw one look as scruffy as the second shot--too appealing!

By Ken from da UP on Saturday, March 16, 2002 - 11:13 pm:

I've been watching and feeding these little guys for years here. They sure are tame and 'talkative'. They sit on a branch just inches from the feeder while I'm refilling it and when I step away they chirp just like they're saying "Thank you!" They really are neat, they should be the Michigan state bird. Pytavay, a very Happy St. Urho's Day to all!! Just got home from the Ishpeming Elk's St. Urho's Day Dance. A good time was had by all. Art Moilanen and his Mrs. won the costume contest. :o) We'll be playing again there in two weeks for Suomi
Kutsuu's 40th anniversary dance. It'll be fun! March 30 3 - 8 pm. C'mon out and hear Kilpela and Friends!

Those Chickadee photos are really great! Thanks, Peg, and thanks to Charlie for sharing the Pasty Cam with
