Black-capped Chickadee

The Black-capped Chickadee’s strength of character belies it’s small physical size. 

Harsh upstate New York winters of strong winds blowing falling snow in subfreezing temperatures will not contain him. In your backyard or in the woods at times like these you are apt to hear the nearby call of, “Chick-a-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.”

Thousands of migratory songbirds invading his homeland in the spring and summer do not intimidate the Chickadee; going about his business as usual with what appears to be a single mindedness of purpose.

It has an almost fearless and inquisitive nature which comes across as friendliness.

Not the most colorful songbird but it is one of the cutest you will see.  

One of nature’s finest, the Black-capped Chickadee.
