Chickadee, Titmice, Nuthatch, and Creeper Photos

Paridae, Sittidae, and Certhidae Families

The species in these 3 groups often seem to be found together, so I'm lumping them all on this page.  Note the Bridled Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, and Verdin are all species that haven't been found in South Dakota.
