I love chickadees... they come to my deck and feeders by the dozens.
If you have seed in your hand and stand very still, they will come to you and eat out of your hand. You have to be very patient. Please notice this little guy with his little tongue touching the seed.
The Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a small, North American songbird, a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is the state bird of both Maine and Massachusetts in the United States, and the provincial bird of New Brunswick in Canada. It is notable for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights, its good spatial memory to relocate the caches where it stores food, and its boldness near humans (they can feed from the hand).
