Great photo! I have never seen this species before!

Thanks...

I've never seen them on my feeder, but they always seem to hang out with their black-capped cousins, in the woods, although they're fewer in number, and much more shy. Once they've seen me feed enough black-capped chickadees, from my hand, they will eventually trust me, and can be hand-fed, too. Great little birds. Not sure why, but their expected lifespan is only about 30% as long as the black-caps.

Thank you for the information on the Boreal Chickadee. I will have to keep an eye out for them.
