Mountain Chickadees

As the name implies, Mountain Chickadees are usually found in the mountains. 

However, they can also be found as far east in the City of Calgary. The chickadees in this article were photographed in the Rocky Mountains just below the snow line a few days ago.

These birds are not that common even in the mountains. When I found this bird it was part of a group of about six chickadees. They were feeding on the spruce and evergreen trees.

They can be mistaken for the Black-capped Chickadee. The white stripe on the head is the identification mark to look for.
