Product Description

Maine designated the black-capped chickadee as the official state bird in 1927. A minuscule, cheerfully sociable bird, the energetic (in fact, acrobatic) black-capped chickadee does not migrate - allowing us to enjoy them all year long. The black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is a member of the titmouse family (also known as the titmouse, tomtit, and the dickybird).

The unique call of the chickadee is one of the most complex in the animal kingdom - very slight variations in the "chick-a-dee" can act as an alarm call, a contact call, or can be used to relay information when they recognize another flock.

Maine designated the white pine cone and tassel (Pinus strobus, linnaeus) as the official state floral emblem in 1895 (botanically, the white pine cone and tassel are not considered true flowers). The white pine (also the state tree of Maine) is considered the largest conifer in the northeastern United States. Maine's nickname is "The Pine Tree State" and the eastern white pine is also the state tree of Maine.

The approximate design size using 18 count fabric is 8" x 13.39" - stitch count is 144 x 241.
