The Black-capped Chickadee is a small, common songbird, a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is the state bird of both Maine and Massachusetts, and the provincial bird of New Brunswick in Canada.The Black-capped Chickadee has a black cap and bib with white sides to the face. Its underparts are white with rusty brown on the flanks; its back is gray. It has a short dark bill, short wings and a long tail. I shot this cute little guy in my back yard in Morris County NJ.
