Chestnut-backed Chickadee

Physical Traits: The Chestnut-backed Chickadee is named for its chestnut back and rump. It is the smallest member of the chickadee family. While it does not have a distinctive "whistle", it uses a repeated clicking note to announce its presence.

Habitat: The Chestnut-backed Chickadee uses fur to make its nest, in fact adults make a layer of fur nearly 1/2 inch thick to cover the eggs when they leave the nest. The nest is found in holes of dead trees or rotted branches.

Recommended Feeder: Large hopper, large tube, platform, small hopper, small tube, suet cage

Feeder Tips: Chickadees are sure-footed and need no perches. Hang your feeder in or near a tree, and always use a squirrel guard, because sunflower seeds and nuts are squirrels' favorites, too. Look for a rough-wood feeder with openings large enough for the Chickadee's beak.

States and Regions Found: They can be found along the Pacific Coast from southern Alaska to southern California, as well as in the mountains from southeastern British Columbia to northern Idaho and eastern Oregon.
