Here's a photo of the Carolina Chickadee to compare to the Black Capped Chickadee from PG last night. As in that discussion, notice the neater black bib difference. Also there is slightly less buff color under the wing and less whitish color on the wings. Both were common back where I lived in Kansas and it could be really hard to tell them apart when you considered juveniles, molting, ect. Also they are known to cross breed. BUT, the Carolina Chickadees voice or song is always faster with the dee-dee-dees and quite a bit higher and that was dependable.

Love those little rascals

I just checked the bird guide to make sure, Tex. If your in Texas you have Carolina chickadees, not Black Capped.

Thanks Photo. It was a fun discussion.

I guess I've been wrong all these years. This is what I have around here, and I always called them Black Capped. I'll see what the info at my lake has to say, they're thick around there, and I have never noticed what kind they are. Thanks for the info, Warbler, I learned something today too.

Thanks Pumpkin-they can be confusing, even the voice if you haven't heard both of them enough to hear which is which.

Thanks Chickie I hope this was helpful.

Thank you Trish I'm pretty sure I'm to wordy but I can't seem to help myself.

Nice shot and explanation warbler.

It is all about the bib. Unless you look at both at the same time, it is hard to tell them apart.
Good photo, warbler. Thanks for the information you provided all of us!
