Boreal Chickadees Everywhere!

Boreal Chickadee

It seems everywhere I turn there are Boreal Chickadees!

They like coniferous trees, especially Jack Pine and White Spruce. These little birds are the same size as our more familiar Black-capped Chickadees, but as you can see they have a brown cap and extensive brown shading on their flanks. Their backs are a grayish-blue color and the gray extends up on to their cheeks. They used to be called Hudsonian Chickadees in the old days.
