Product Description

The black-capped chickadee was designated the state bird of Massachusetts in 1941. 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.

The fragrant, delicate mayflower (Epigaea regens) has been on the endangered list since 1925. Also known as ground laurel or trailing arbutus, mayflowers prefer sandy or rocky soil, under or near evergreens. Massachusetts adopted the mayflower as the official flower of the Commonwealth in 1918.

The approximate design size using 18 count fabric is 8" x 11.28" - stitch count is 144 x 203.
