At the end of January chickadees begin to explore potential nest sites (bird houses) so that as soon as the flocks break up for breeding, each pair can claim a territory within their home range.
Their melodious sweet-ie song is heard beginning on sunny February days and continues into March when chickadees dispute territory rights. The loud whistled fee-bee-beeyee songs become a familiar sound as male chickadees engage in prolonged fee-bee battles with their male neighbors. That’s when you know spring is here!
