Bird enthusiast Skjalg-Helmer Vian (14) from Vadsø, Norway was reading about the Grey-headed chickadee (Poecile cinctus) when an actual one swooped in to see what all the fuss was about. The boy’s father, Geir Arne Vian captured, the amazing photo opp and the image has been circulating online as of late.
The grey-headed chickadee, also known as the Siberian tit, is widespread throughout subarctic Scandinavia and northern Asia, and also into North America in Alaska and the far northwest of Canada. Curiously (with respect to its name), the bird has no grey on its head, which is black, white, and brown.
