This little bird came visiting in my back yard one day late in winter. We have both the Black-capped Chickadee and Carolina chickadee in North Carolina. North Carolina is a year round habitat for Carolina Chickadees. The Black-capped Chickadee, which I believe is the variety pictured above, will winter in North Carolina when food is scarce in its normal habitat further north.
