Wild Bird Guide : Black-Capped Chickadee
by Susan M. Smith




Overview -
-- Hard-to-observe behaviors captured by top wildlife photographers
-- Fascinating and lively text by leading ornithologists
-- Complete picture of a species' life in the wild

"This series will find a welcome place in bird-watching's storehouse of literature". -- Pete Dunne, Director Natural History Information, New Jersey Audubon Society

A study of the life of the Black-capped Chickadee reveals surprising facts about the familiar backyard visitor: It is exceptionally agile, yet it cannot walk headfirst down trees. Females engage in extrapair mating with higher-ranked -- but never lower-ranked -- males. Chickadees use controlled hypothermia to help them survive frigid winter nights. This unique guide offers an entertaining examination of the natural history of this popular songbird -- from courtship, and nesting to communicating, foraging, and flying. Full-color photos illustrate every aspect of the Black-capped Chickadee's life, making "Black-Capped Chickadee" an essential reference for anyone with an interest in learning more about birds.
