Carolina Chickadee

They are abundant and they are everywhere. Most of birders really don't care much about this little bird. Even photographers will be reluctantly zooming in their camera towards Carolina Chickadee (Regulus satrapa). But have you ever wondered for a second why there are so many of them? John James Audubon named this bird when he was in South Carolina.  In fact, these intelligent, curious birds carry a very important message: "follow us, we know where food is! A lot of passing through, or migrating song birds mixing with chickadees forage at stop-over grounds. I spotted one Tennessee Warbler and my first Ruby-crowned Kinglet by just watching these vivacious birds!

If you are wondering where everyone's gone ...I mean where birds are, follow Carolina Chickadee's move (hear their songs and calls here). So pay attention to these chickadees during migration time, you may gain few more life birds! Happy Birding! -- Linda.
