Photo by Todd Koehler
Chickadee's can frequently be found around bird feeders or hanging upside down in search of insect eggs or larve. They frequently travel in groups. The chickadee above was photographed eating at a thistle seed feeder in Wisconsin.

The black-capped chickadee is the state bird of Maine and Massachusetts.

There are 4 other Chickadee's found on North America. The one that resembles the Black Capped Chickadee the most is the Carolina Chickadee. The most biggest difference is that the Carolina Chickadee is found throughout the Southeast and the Black Capped Chickadee is found more in northern states.

The Boreal Chickadee whose range is almost solely limited to Northern boreal forests, where it prefers dense conifer, particularly Black Spruce and Balsam Fir.

The Chestnut-backed Chickadee prefers mature conifers particularly along the coastal rainforest of the Pacific Northwest. However they can be found along the coast from midde California to Southern Alaska.

Mountain Chickadee's prefer mixed forest habitats found in the Rocky Mountains and West, and rarly go below 3,000' even in winter.
