Artist's Description

This Carolina Chickadee stood still for several seconds (long for him!) and gave me a chance to get several close-ups of him. Usually, chickadees move so rapidly, it’s hard to photograph them; occasionally, though, they perch on a branch and ponder a while. I was happy to capture a bit of pondering here.

There is very little difference between Carolina chickadees and black capped chickadees except their territorial domains. The Carolina chickadee resides in the southeastern woodlands of the United States whereas the black capped chickadee has a more northerly domain. Although the black capped chickadee does sometimes move southward, the Carolina chickadee seldom moves out of its range. There has been documentation of overlapping flocks and some hybridization. The Carolina chickadee is smaller than the black capped, has a shorter tail, less tawniness in its flanks, and a neater lower edge of its bib.
