Carolina chickadee (again)

I hope I never get sick of seeing these these little birds. They’re barely bigger than a hummingbird, but a lot fluffier, and it’s hard to believe what a big sound comes out of these tiny beaks.

If you see one, it can be hard to tell a black-capped chickadee from a Carolina chickadee, so the easiest way to tell what you’re looking at is to look at a map. The two species have barely any range overlap.
