Nature Walks – Black-Capped Chickadee

WHOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Success at last. I FINALLY have been able to get some very good shots of the little Black-Capped Chickadee! They have been so elusive and hard to capture for quite some time. But today, I got very lucky!!!!

Colorado has two types of Chickadees native to our lands. The Mountain Chickadee and the Black-Capped Chickadee. The Black-Capped Chickadees like the lower elevations, so these are the ones we have around us. We are at 5,420 feet above sea level, but many of our mountainous areas are well over 14,000 feet above sea level. They also like to be around people and prefer the hustle and bustle of the more urban areas, rather than the quiet solitude of being in the woods, like their cousins, the Mountain Chickadees. They are usually around from January – summer. They get their name because of their scratchy chick-a-dee-dee-dee song.
