Chestnut-backed Chickadee:   


John Kirk Townsend, 1836:    "Parus rufescens., Chestnut-backed Titmouse. Description. Head, throat, and upper part of the breast and back, blackish-brown; back, rump and sides beneath the wings, bright chestnut, with a broad diverging band along the sides of the neck and below, white. Length 4-1/2 inches. Inhabits the forests of the Columbia river. It is nearly allied to P. Hudsonius, but is distinguished by its smaller size and chestnut coloured back." -- (Source: John Kirk Townsend, 1836, Description of Twelve New Species of Birds, chiefly from the vicinity of the Columbia river, IN: Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, 1837, Vol.II, Part II.)
