Mountain chickadee        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Mountain chickadees (identified by their distinctive white eye-stripes) are common at high elevations in most of western North America.   These birds were photographed in California, in aspen forest along Convict Creek in the eastern Sierra of Mono County and in the San Jacinto Mountains.
