Black-capped Chickadee

107B Black-capped Chickadee

A year-round resident all across the northern United States and Canada. Very similar to the Carolina Chickadee with minor difference in color patterns which we tried to exaggerate slightly in our designs. The two species have distinct ranges with little overlap, with the Black-capped associated more with northern states and the mountainous region of Appalachia. In the west, where they share ranges with other chickadees, the Black-capped possibly shows a stronger preferences for deciduous habitats and lower elevations.
