Chickadee’s Song

The call of a Black Capped Chickadee is bright. The call begins with a few gargles and afterward will continue with gentle song. Their call is composed of two or three notes, often called the “Hey Sweetie” call because of the way it sounds. However, there is some variation and style depending on the bird.

Black Capped Chickadee Diet

Their diet consists mainly of insects until the winter months when they nourish on seeds and berries. They remain in the trees to search for their food, unless they must make short flights to find it. They will nest in hallowed parts of trees or in bird boxes, sometimes they will also utilize other abandoned bird nests.
