Range in New England
In New England, the Boreal Chickadee is a permanent resident in east-central and west-central Maine, northern New Hampshire, and far northeastern Vermont.
In the fall and winter, this bird periodically moves further south in Vermont and New Hampshire and can occasionally be found in areas south of those states.
These irruptions vary in magnitude and location. Thus the Boreal Chickadee may move southward into different areas in one year than another year.
