INTERESTING FACTS

  • The song of the Black-capped Chickadee is one of the most complex vocalizations of all animals, acting as a contact call, an alarm call, to identify an individual, or to indicate recognition of a particular flock.
  • They may cache food in hundreds of different sites, recalling those locations and retrieving food up to 28 days later.
  • It is the state bird of Maine and Massachusetts.
  • A group of chickadees are collectively known as a “banditry” and a “dissimulation” of chickadees.
