The Carolina Chickee is a cute, small bird with a short, stout beak. It has white cheeks, a black crown, and a black throat.
||Long Island, New York
05/11/2023 - My first exposure to this bird came when I visited New York in 2014. My friend's parents live on Long Island and we saw these birds in their backyard. Now that I live in Texas, I see them almost every time I go birding.
I usually see these birds in groups up in tree canopies. They love to sing and offer many great opportunities to record them.

- This is the trademark song of the Carolina Chickadee. Four or five whistles of different pitches.

- This is a much more complex version of their song and call. It's very erratic and much faster than the lazy song in the clip above.

- Listen to the calls of the Carolina Chickadee. There are some quiet calls of a Northern Cardinal in the background.
