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!
