Black-capped Chickadee

Inquisitive, active, and — we’ll just say it — cute, this lively little bird fills the woods with its cheerful call: chick-a-dee. Invite it to your backyard with feeders and nest boxes; this charming bird will readily accept.

When you adopt a Black-capped Chickadee, you support Audubon’s conservation work to protect birds and the places they need. You’ll receive:

  • A lifelike plush Black-capped Chickadee that plays a recording of its song when squeezed
  • Adoption certificate and personalized letter from Audubon CEO, David Yarnold
