After I saw the Alder Flycatcher, I started back through the bog toward the car. I hadn’t gone too far when I spotted the Boreal Chickadee I’d come to see. It was foraging three to four feet off the ground in a straggly spruce, moving around fairly rapidly. I heard a few high-pitched nasal notes unlike those of a Black-capped Chickadee. It soon disappeared into a very thick patch of spruce through which I was not about to try and follow.
