This Carolina Chickadee was here at the bird feeder in my yard on a cloudy Saturday evening. The Carolina Chickadee is quite close in looks to its cousin the Black-capped Chickadee. The Carolina Chickadee has a slightly larger black bib on the upper part of its chest and is a tiny bit larger than the Black-capped Chickadee. I live in a forested area in Eastern Tennessee so this is one of the prime areas where Carolina Chickadees reside. They are mostly insect and seed eaters and have been here in resent days with the White-breasNuthatches and Tufted-titmice. All are very small birds. I took these pictures on Sept. 29, 2012 from my living room window. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
