Resident Songbirds: Black-capped Chickadee

The state bird of both Massachusetts and Maine and the provincial bird of New Brunswick is the Black-capped Chickadee.  Well-known for their chick-a-dee-dee-dee calls, these year-round residents also sing clear, two-note songs that sound like fee-bay.

  1. Hi Josh, you have had some great pictures recently. How’d you convince this guy to hold still long enough? And the spider web and wasp were great too.

    And I think for your last post. They must be a flock of Canadian geese with the smaller white snow goose with black wingtips?

    1. Thanks for your kind words Matt. I guess I got lucky with this Chickadee shot.

      You are right on with the geese — that is a Snow Goose in the mix.
