Black-capped Chickadee on Twig

The Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a small, North American songbird, a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is the state bird of both Maine and Massachusetts in the United States, and the provincial bird of New Brunswick in Canada. The Black-capped Chickadee is notable for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights. I took this picture in the azalea garden and the New York Botanical Gardens.
