Mountain Chickadee

Poecile gambeli


Tiny, large-headed but small-billed, with a long, narrow tail and full, rounded wings. Like all chickadees, strikingly black-and-white on the head, gray elsewhere. The white stripe over the eye identifies Mountain Chickadees from all other chickadees.


Area near Santa Fe Ski Lodge in pine forest of Sangre de Cristo Mountains at 10,000 ft.
