Black-Capped Chickadee
The black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a small, nonmigratory, North American songbird that lives in deciduous and mixed forests. It is 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. It is well known for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights as well as its good spatial memory to relocate the caches where it stores food, and its boldness near humans (sometimes feeding from the hand).

In the reverse the coin features a beloved black-capped chickadee in an idyllic winter setting. With its inquisitive gaze fixed to the ground, this side profile of a chickadee showcases the light and dark contrast of its soft, thick feathers. Running across the coin is the chickadee’s chosen perch: the snow-covered branch of a deciduous shrub. Five red Swarovski® crystal elements are beautifully integrated into the design as bright red berries hanging delicately below – one of the few splashes of colour amidst the whites and greys of a Canadian wintry landscape. Behind the chickadee, decorative snowflakes fill the background and add to the festive feeling. In the obverse her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England, in profile.
