This looks like a Chickadee family but I’m not sure. Definitely a fledgling and 2 adults but the one above looks like a Chestnut-backed and the adult below looks like a Black-capped, the baby looks a bit more like a Chestnut-backed too. Do they cross breed?

  1. That’s a great capture! I’m in Florida, so only have Carolina Chickadees, which nest in a box, that hangs close to my kitchen window, giving me great observations. I just bought that same fountain, and hoping to have some visitors check it out.

      Please tell me where you found this fountain, I want to run out and get one for my garden & birds, of course. Thanks!
      ps ~ I’m in Massachusetts by the way.

    They are all Chestnut-backed Chickadees, but they could cross breed.
