Birdwatching: Black-capped Chickadee

Easily attracted to winter bird-feeding stations, the black-capped chickadee (Parus atricapillus) is commonly found around woodlands, clearings and suburbs throughout Canada and the northern U.S. This small, 12- to 15-centimetre-long songbird—with its conspicuous black cap, black neck and white cheeks—forages among thickets and trees for seeds and insects. Often becoming quite tame, this chickadee can be trained to alight on a hand full of sunflower seeds.
