Carolina Chickadee, November 13, 2021

Saturday's Critters and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, November 12, 2021
Carolina Chickadees, Poecile carolinensis, were named by John James Audubon when he first saw them in South Carolina. They are very similar to the Black-capped Chickadees, Poecile atricapillus, and unless you live where the two ranges overlap, you can use the maps to help with identification. Their main food sources are insects and spiders, but they will come to bird feeders. They seem to especially like sunflower seeds.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Hello, Lea!

    The chickadees are so sweet. I miss feeding the birds. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

  2. They are one of the cutest birds at the feeders! We have some there this morning. Hugs!

  3. They always seem to be friendly birds!

  4. I always enjoy watching them at my feeders. They are so cute.

  5. Hello Lea,:=) They are small sweet little birds similar to our Coal Tits. I also love to see the Coal Tits at the feeder eating the Sun Flower seeds

  6. I thought it was a black capped one. Sunflower seeds are a huge favourite with the birds at the feeder here.

  7. ...Lea, you sure know your birds!
