Maine State Bird - Chickadee
Maine State Bird


The Chickadee, designated as the state bird of Maine, is a small, charismatic songbird known for its distinctive call that sounds like "chick-a-dee-dee-dee." The most prevalent species in Maine is the Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus). These perky little birds are easily recognizable with their black caps and bibs, contrasting white cheeks, and grayish wings and back. Chickadees are a beloved symbol of Maine's natural beauty, resilience, and adaptability to the state's diverse ecosystems, from its dense forests to its cold winters. They're a common sight at bird feeders and a cherished part of Maine's avian landscape.
