One species, we as Newfoundlanders, tend to take for granted is Boreal Chickadee. While it is quite similar to the much more widespread Black-capped Chickadee, there is just something about it. Maybe it's their insistance to fend for themselves, and not rely on bird feeders; maybe it's their hoarse voice. For whatever reason, they are a species that has always captured my heart and it's easy to see why it's such a sought after species for visiting birders, from more southern locales.
I'll leave you with several photos. Stay tuned for upcoming blogs, where I will continue to showcase some of our native Boreal species and will include some interesting identification tidbits as well!
Thanks for reading!
