This handsome bird is a resident of the upper half of the United States and into Canada. An interesting fact about the Carolina Chickadee
is that, much like a squirrel, it hides seeds to eat later, it can actually recall up to 1000 hiding spots..
. Chickadees also have a complex vocalization including a warning call alerting others to a potential predator.
Call: Chickadees make their chickadee-dee-dee call using increasing numbers of dee notes when they are alarmed:
The Cornell website
describes this bird as "cute
" and I have to agree, that's a fairly accurate description!
