Black Capped Chickadee.  Small  cute North American bird; has a black cap and bib and white cheeks. Its cheeks are white while its back is gray with no streaks. Though its wings are of a dark gray colour, they may have some white on the edges. The Black-capped Chickadee has a rather long tail which is the same colour as the wings (without the white edging).
