Black-capped Chickadee 2

A couple of days ago I wrote about identifying Black-capped and Carolina chickadees. The task is often difficult. Another field mark is the relatively ragged throat patch on a Black-capped Chickadee. Carolina’s have a much sharper line between the black of the throat and the rest of their white underparts. This photo is of one of several birds that discovered suet crumbs below the feeders on 4 February 2019.
