New Brunswick Provincial Bird

The Black-Capped Chickadee

The black-capped chickadee was proclaimed as the official bird of New Brunswick in August 1983, following a contest conducted by the provincial Federation of Naturalists. A small, tame acrobatic bird, the chickadee is distinctly patterned with a combination of a black cap and bib, white cheeks and buff sides. Its distinctive "chickadee-dee-dee" is heard throughout the year. Its clear high-whistled "phe-be, phe-be-be" is a signal spring has arrived.
