A Beautiful Black-Capped Chickadee


Isn't she lovely!!
The Black-Capped Chickadee has a black cap
and bib with white sides to the face.
Its underparts are white with rusty brown on the flanks.
Its back is gray and the tail is normally slate-gray.
This bird has a short dark bill, short rounded wings
and a long tail.
Sexes look alike, but males are slightly larger and longer than females.
 
I think this is a girl!!

  3. Chickadees are such friendly little birds. They'll soon be appearing here and remaining through the winter. This is a great photo.
