Small spherical bird with black cap, black beard, grey wings, white cheeks, beady eyes.
Bouncing between branches of a tree, eating seeds from a feeder one at a time.
Occasionally confused with:
Boreal chickadee, which has a brown cap.
They can remember where they've hidden food for at least 28 days.
