Lives, Habitats & Pictures of Chickadees

Enter Bird's Name in Search Box:


There are seven types of chickadees in North America and of these five types can be found in Canada. They are the Black-capped Chickadee, Boreal Chickadee, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Gray-headed Chickadee and Mountain Chickadee. The Carolina Chickadee can be found in the southeastern regions of the United States and the Mexican Chickadee can only be found near the borders of the southern United States and into Mexico.

The chickadees are widespread throughout North America and some species are much more common than others. The chickadees are not a migratory bird as such, but they will migrate short distances in search of a food supply. These birds are very friendly and most types will come to birdfeeders if they like the kind of food being offered.
