The state bird of both Maine and Massachusetts, as well as official bird of New Brunswick, the black-capped chickadee is one of the most prevalent songbirds to brave the Minnesota winter. While their diet consists primarily of insects most of the year, in winter they need all the extra energy they can get, so berries and seeds and suet make up much more of their diet. They don’t just gorge at feeders, though—these little birds have fantastic memories, and they will sneak food and hide it for later. A single chickadee may cache as many as 100,000 food items a year—almost all in different locations, and never reusing a hiding spot.
Giclée prints are printed on archival cotton rag. Inks are water based and free of Nickel, PFOS, PFOA and VOC’s, which are harmful to the environment and cause degradation of prints.
Prints are all matted; an 8×10 print comes in a mat to fit an 11×14 frame, and 11×14 matted prints fit a 16×20 frame.
