Black Capped Chickadee

Black Capped Chickadee

Black-capped chickadee : Parus atricapillus 4¾-5¾” (12-14 cm)
Chickadee’s are members of the titmouse family (paridae). This small tame acrobat is distinctively patterned with a combination of black cap and bib, white cheeks, sides buffy. Black capped chickadee’s and Carolina chickadee’s are very similar, the carolina chickadee is smaller and lacks the white area in the wings.
