Hey, Sweetie!

I was researching the Black-capped Chickadee and discovered on Allaboutbirds.org that its song differs depending on where the bird lives.

“In most of North America, its song is a simple, pure 2 or 3 note whistled fee-bee or hey, sweetie.”

Here is a watercolor painting I completed of two Black-capped Chickadees.  Part of the exercise was learning how to paint a stone wall and fence in Val Webb’s online class.  It is my last assignment for this class but I will keep painting and learning about birds!

Did you know that the Black-capped Chickadee is one of the first birds that people learn about?  I’m not sure I have ever seen one in my area.  But now I’m going to be listening for its song of 3 to 4 notes of the same pitch.

Do you know what tune this bird whistles where you live?

Happy Bird Watching!
