Boreal Chickadee

The Boreal Chickadee is a small songbird in the tit family. Their breeding habitat is coniferous woods in Canada, Alaska and the northern edges of the United States.

They nest in a hole in a tree. A pair of Boreal Chickadees will use a natural cavity or sometimes an old woodpecker nest and will remains together year round. They may even stay together for life.

These birds forage on conifer branches or probe into the bark. They mainly eat insects and seeds and will store food for later use.

The call is a husky tsik-a-dee-dee, a variant on the call which gives chickadees their name.
