Boreal Chickadee?


Recommended Posts

The flank coloring in the first and last photos is intriguing. I’m actually not certain of the Id on this bird.

However, my gut reaction would be to say it is a Black-capped Chickadee. It looks fine for a Black-capped to me and Black-capped would be far more likely.

Based on location and habitat, Boreal Chickadee would be very unlikely. The farthest south place in Ontario I know of that’s truly reliable for Boreal Chickadees, is Algonquin Park.

There is significant white edgings to the secondaries, the amount of white in the cheeks is FAR too much for BOCH, and the cap looks too dark for BOCH. It’s a Black-capped Chickadee.
