Black-capped Chickadee
Poecile atricapilla
 (L 5.25" WS 8" Wt 0.39 oz )
Hard to believe this tiny bird,
Who’s nearly four inches long,
Can carry out a tune
That echoes so loud and strong.
Fee-bee-Fee-bay
    (Stacy Smith, The Voice of Spring)
Has a familiar song “chick-a-
dee-dee ...the more “dees”
the higher the alarm.
