This special little Chickadee is different than the more numerous “Black-capped” Chickadees. This is a Boreal Chickadee and they sport a brown cap. This Chickadee would be considered a specialty of our northeastern boreal forest. Birdwatchers travel from other parts of the country and world to add this bird to their life list.
The Boreal Chickadee is a year round resident here in northern Minnesota and they are busy with nesting now.
