The black-capped chickadee was named the Massachusetts state bird in 1941. Black-capped chickadees are social, energetic, and friendly birds. Chickadees don’t migrate so people there enjoy them all year long.

In 1980 the Right Whale was known as Massachusetts state mammal. The whales are called Right because they swim slowly, close to the surface, and near the shores since they have lots of blubber.
