Black-capped Chickadee at Manchester
- While birding with the group from Albion on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 29,
in the campground at Manchester Beach State Park I found a Black-capped
Chickadee in a flock of Chestnut-backed Chickadees. Views of the birds
were short as they moved through the pines and cypress trees. But the
one Black-capped Chickadee gave a striking view as it worked over a group
of exposed cones on a bare cypress branch for half a minute before moving
behind the greenery. I hope someone else can find this bird again.
