A Carolina Chickadee came to the bird feeder yesterday morning here at the little farm. This bird was the first Carolina Chickadee I have seen here this year. I used to see a lot of the Carolina Chickadees where I just moved from at my lake home. That home was located in a heavily wooded neighborhood. My present neighborhood does have woodlands but also has a lot of cleared pasture lands. I am hoping to see more of the cute little Carolina Chickadees.
Carolina Chickadees are grey with a black head, white cheeks, white chest and a little area of black at the throat and upper chest (sometimes referred to as a “bib”). They eat berries, fruits, seeds, and many insects. Both the males and females look-alike. Young chickadees also look similar to the adults but of course are small. These birds tend to hang out with other small birds like the Tufted Titmice. They often sound like: “Chick-a-dee-dee-dee”. I so enjoyed seeing this perky bird yesterday. These pictures were taken from inside my living room through the window and porch railing. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
