This bird shows infrequently at our feeder, in and out very quickly but today we got a shot, not a very good one but we think it is an Eastern Kingbird. What do you think??

Agree with the Chickadee, though I´m not sure why the photo excludes a Black-capped Ch. Doesn´t the warm brown flanks fit for them better?

Now that I look at my guide it does match a bit better with the Black Capped one, it says they may move south in the fall. We got a better pic and now its more obvious.

At least according to Ebird, Black-capped Chickadee is only found in the Appalachians in North Carolina and I think would be very unlikely further east. Carolina Chickadee is the one you would expect at lower levels.

Carolina it is then, and thanks. Here is another that appeared while trying to get the Chickadee.

Yup! Andrew is correct. First 2 are Carolina Chickadees and the last is a Tufted Titmouse.
