It’s tough to get a good picture because they don’t stay at the feeder for more than a couple seconds. But is there enough detail in this picture to tell whether it is a black-capped or Carolina chickadee? I am right on the geographic line separating their habitats. Thanks!5A34B3C5-93B0-4A76-8D4F-F65E871496F1.jpeg
This looks better for Carolina: dull, greyish neck and wing bar. Difficult to be sure if in hybrid zone, though
