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).
The Black-capped Chickadee has a black cap and bib with white sides to the face. Its under parts are white with rusty brown on the flanks. Its back is grey and the tail is normally slate-gray. This bird has a short dark bill of 89.5 mm (0.310.37 in), short rounded wings 63.567.5 mm (2.502.66 in), a tarsus of 1617 mm (0.630.67 in) and a long tail at 5863 mm (2.32.5 in). Total body length is 1215 cm (4.75.9 in), wingspan is 1621 cm (6.38.3 in) and body mass is 914 g (0.320.49 oz). Sexes look alike, but males are slightly larger and longer than females.
