The Black capped Chickadee is a common song bird found throughout Alberta.

It's song can be recognized by the call Chick-a-dee-dee-dee, which I'm sure it's name was derived from. They can be found all year long and are quick to take sunflower seeds from hand. They're very good at sharing, if one finds food it will call others to join in. The Chickadee nests in tree holes often found high up on dead limbs. The holes are usually perfectly round about 1.2 inches in size. See more information on Chickadee's at Wikipedia
