Veery has temporarily moved! The Birdfreak Team is partially split for the summer as Veery spends a few months working in Jefferson City, Missouri. Join in on her adventures through a new state and her quest to answer this question: How’s the birding in mid-Missouri?
My niece’s birthday was Saturday (July 25) and to celebrate I decided to get a LIFE BIRD, a Carolina Chickadee! Lifers are hard to come by for me in this area, so I was excited to finally see this one. I’m living “on the border”!
I know the Black-capped Chickadee and the Carolina Chickadee seem to rarely mix, but here in Jefferson City, they do. I was hiking at Runge Conservation Nature Center and I found both chickadee species in various locations, singing loudly. I really like the song of the Carolina Chickadee, but as looks go, I can’t tell them apart. My next goal is to get a photo of one for our Photo Lifelist (or wait until Birdfreak visits me with his awesome camera)!
Good Birding Everyone!
