Yes!! They are related species. :thumbs:

The Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a small, North American songbird, 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 notable for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights, its good spatial memory to relocate the caches where it stores food, and its boldness near humans (they can feed from the hand).

Thу bird on the first photo looks like a willow tit. Two years ago such birds ate seeds from my palm.



For me bird in first photo also looks like Willow tit. Black-capped chickadee has intense buff color on sides. But if this photo is from North America, then of course Willow tit is unreliable variant.

Another photo of a black-capped chickadee. I know mine at my feeders don't have much coloring on their sides like the other photo I posted. There are more than 2 types of chickadee in the US, too.

Can anyone identify it, please?


Hello Jo! :)

I think it is a young Steppe Eagle (Aquila nipalensis).

this is not an eagle for sure, perhaps a falcon or smaller species?

I suspect it is a hawk, probably a buteo. Red-tailed hawks seem to be the mostly likely. But keep your eyes peeled for more sightings, maybe you will see a detail that will prove it one way or another.

NancyM & alice44, thanks for you answers. Yea, it does look very similar to Red-tailed Hawk from that website you gave me.

I saw one of them- I think its one of them- today as I was about to write this post.

He/she refused to fully turn to the camera.

[Edit] Here we go.
