Small birds under the fig tree, continued

I usually put out birdseed on a brick wall under a fig tree in my front yard. Lately I have been trying to take pictures of some little birds that flit around pretty fast, a challenge for the photographer. Most come out blurred. Below is what looks like a sequence of the same Carolina chickadee investigating some birdseed, pecking at it, and triumphantly bearing away quite an enormous sunflower seed. But, sadly, I have to tell you it is more than one bird, and the shots are not in sequence.


Chickadee looks over the menu...

decides on a morsel...

and quite a morsel it is
