This chestnut-backed chickadee shares much of the same range as its cousin, the black-capped chickadee. Interestingly, they may share the same resources, but they don't share the same feeding habits. Chestnut-backed chickadees like to feed near the top of conifers and other deciduous trees, while black-capped chickadees prefer the lower half of these same trees. Therefore, they don't compete for resources.
