BIRD OF THE WEEK

BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Poecile atricapillus
POPULATION: 39 million
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Forests, thickets, parks, backyards.

The feisty Black-capped Chickadee is the most common and widespread of the seven chickadee species found in North America. Named for its call and trademark black cap, this little bird is a common sight at backyard bird feeders

Each fall, Black-capped Chickadees gather and store large supplies of seeds in many different places – an adaptation that helps them to survive harsh winters. But how do they remember where they stash their supplies of seed?
