Found throughout Canadas native woodlands and the backyards of many city dwellers, the black-capped Chickadee is a diminutive bird species that has an inquisitive spirit and the uncanny ability to melt the heart of those who encounter at the feeder in their backyard.
These songbirds are notable among Canadas bird species because they are year-round residents of Canada. The resilience of the species should not be overlooked as it sticks it out through the harsh Canadian winters alongside its human compatriots. On many a winter morning, when the rest of the world is still, you can hear the distinctive sound of the chickadee.
