small bird can be identified by its black cap and bib and white cheeks.
The back is grey with white underparts; the wings are edged with white.
Their characteristic call is a buzzy "chick-a-dee-dee-dee".
- The black-capped chickadee
ranges throughout all of Canada. They inhabit deciduous and mixed forests
and open woodlands, often wintering in suburban areas.
- The chickadee feeds on insects,
seeds and berries. They prepare their nest with grass, fur, plant down,
feathers and moss in a hole in a rotten tree stump, a natural cavity or a
bird box. This bird is constantly active, either hopping, clinging or
hanging from tree branches.
