Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapilla) is Canada’s most widespread bird species, flitting about wooded areas as far north as Alaska. It measures a mere 12–15 cm (4.75–6 in) tip to tip but is surprisingly hardy to brave the northern climate and larger avian species. Black-capped Chickadees will not hesitate to challenge intruders and can often be seen chasing other birds away from feeders. This clever bird is also known to hide its food—and remember its hidden cache 28 days later!

The Black-capped Chickadee also has notable thermoregulation abilities to decrease its body temperature by 10–12° C (50–54° F) below daytime levels to conserve energy on cold winter nights.

The official bird of New Brunswick sets to the busy task of nesting from April to June. A tree hole is ideal for this compact bird, but it will not refuse an abandoned woodpecker nest or hand-made nesting box.
