Carolina Chickadees (Poecile carolinensis ) are the most popular and abundant birds in the southeast of United States. No matter any weather condition, they are the first ones showing up at my feeders daily. I am fascinated by their inquisitive personality and acrobatic movement. They like to form a small group but they also like to keep some space between each other when foraging. At the regions where Black-caped Chickadee (click link to hear songs) and Carolina Chickadee (click to here their calls and songs) overlaps, hybridization happens occasionally. The interesting fact is that hybrids can sing songs of both parents and that makes me wondering that hybrid figures are smarter :) ...Happy Birding! - Linda
