This is a very small bird that I found difficult to photography because they're so attentive to their surroundings and take NO chances. Although an article in Wikipedia insists they're very friendly to humans, I've never been that lucky.
The black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a small, nonmigratory, North American songbird. It is 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 well known for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights as well as its good spatial memory to relocate the caches where it stores food, and its boldness near humans (sometimes feeding from the hand). (exact words from Wikipedia)
