Chickadee at Home

I was heading out to the store and heard an uncommon call at the house. Along with the calling Tufted Titmice there was another call. Could it be? Yes! A Carolina Chickadee!

Not the best shot as I had to take it through the screen but good enough for an ID. It is also molting out its tail.

Carolina Chickadee

A few years ago a group of us found one at Mead Botanical Garden and that was considered the first sighting there. It seems they are spreading throughout the region and I am a few miles south. We now have some at my bird banding site in Altamonte Springs. This is the first sighting of a Carolina Chickadee at the house. Hope it sticks around for a while.
