Chestnut-backed Chickadee

Chestnut-backed Chickadee
Point Pinole Regional Shoreline, Richmond, California, USA
June 2014
Member of the Titmouse/Chickadee Family
§A Dissimulation of Chickadees§

~weird Wikipedia quote masquerading as a true bird fact~ "It is often considered the most handsome of all chickadees"

~actual true bird fact~ In areas where they overlap with their close relative, Black-capped Chickadee, they divide up the trees in an orderly fashion to avoid nesting confusion. Black-cappeds take higher branches, Chestnut-backeds lowers. How they arrived at this division is unknown to me.

Gets emotionally close very quickly with new people, usurping older and more reliable friends
Obviously this creates drama. Whether the Chickadee wants this or if it's just an unwelcome bi-product of her actual personality is unknown
Sews and knits
