Black Capped Chickade

Black-Capped Chickadee

 

The Black-Capped Chickadee, a small bird known for its black crown or “cap” on its head, can be found in parts of Canada and the United States.

 

The male and female Black-Capped Chickadee look very much alike, with their trademark black cap, a black bib, and white cheeks.

Nesting Habits of the Black-Capped Chickadee

 

The Black-Capped Chickadees build nests of moss and other rough

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.
