Chickadee, July 25, 2018

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and Wednesday Around The World
C is for Carolina Chickadee

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, July 3, 2018
The Carolina Chickadee, Poecile carolinensis, is a small bird with a short neck and round head, giving its body an oval shape. They can be found across the southern United States and as far west as Oklahoma. They are cavity-nesting birds and eat a variety of insects and seeds. You can attract them to your yard with sunflower seeds and suet.

(In 1998 the Carolina Chickadee was moved from the Parus genus to Poecile).

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

  3. Love the cute chickadee. Great shot! Enjoy your day!

  4. A favorite of mine! Not sure why. They are cute, but I think it has a lot to do with the phrase made famous by Mae West, "My little chickadee".

  5. Nothing much cuter than a chickadee.

  6. Chickadees are wonderful little birds. I learned so much about them in the book The Genius of Birds (and about other species too!) Have always enjoyed watching them!

  7. They are sweet, little things. We always have them at our feeders.

  8. She's a sweetie. I'm reminded of W.C. Fields saying, "My little chickadee."

  9. Pretty little bird, well done. Diane
