Birds of the Sanctuary: Black-Capped Chickadee

A year-round resident in northern states, this friendly little bird is very familiar to those who maintain birdfeeders; the ones that hang around my property will fetch seeds from the feeders while I'm standing on the porch beside them. Unmistakable as they recite their name repeatedly, they have faint rusty streaks under the wings that become a little darker during the winter. I've got quite a few of these precious little birds around here. They're particularly fond of black oil sunflower seeds, peanuts and dried mealworms.
