materials, lining the nests with fur and other similar items. Though the chickadee prefers to build a nest in dead trees and branches, it will also use bird boxes.


After the nest is built, the female Black-Capped Chickadee lays 6-8 somewhat round eggs which are white with small reddish brown spots. The eggs hatch within 12-13 days, and the Black-Capped Chickadee chicks leave the nest within 14-18 days.
