Here are two photos of the two types of Chickadees that come to our feeder in the Pacific Northwest. One is the Black-capped Chickadee and the other is the Chestnut-backed Chickadee.

Great photos Judy. It is interesting to note that the Chickadee song is similar across North America, except for one group that habitats on Martha's Vineyard.
Happy Birding,

You are right, Paul. According to one of my bird books, the Chestnut-backed Chickadee is only found along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to California.

We definitely get Black capped chickadees here on the east end of Long Island. I don't believe we get the chestnut backed variety, at least I have not seen one. Anyone know if both can be found?
