BLACK-CAPPED Chickadee
Poecile atricapillus
 
This small bird is one of the most familiar and widespread birds in North America. The Black-capped Chickadee does not migrate and is present all year round. It nests from April to August in mixed or deciduous forests and lays 6 to 8 eggs which are incubated by the female for 12 to 13 days. The chicks will make their first flight approximately 16 days after hatching.

The Black-capped Chickadee generally feeds on insects and caterpillars, but also on berries, seeds and buds. She is a fan of feeders with a preference for sunflower seeds, peanuts and fat. She therefore cannot resist peanut butter, but offer her 100% natural, since the quality of her diet greatly influences her survival during the winter. You can easily convince her to come and get food from your hand while your feeders are empty.

WHITE-BREASTED NUTHATCH
Sitta canadensis

Nuthatches occupy our forests and move along tree trunks in search of insects and are among the only birds you will see upside down. They are present all year round and nest from April to July. The female lays 5 to 8 eggs which she incubates for approximately 12 days. The chicks will make their first flight approximately 14 to 21 days after hatching.

Nuthatches often frequent our feeders and love sunflower seeds, peanuts, peanut butter and suet. They will use cavities in snags of at least 10 to 15 cm in diameter to nest and will reuse old woodpecker nests.
