There are 4 other Chickadee's found on North America. The most similar , the Black Capped Chickadee, is found throughout the Northern North America in areas that have trees and shrubs.

The Boreal Chickadee whose range is almost solely limited to Northern boreal forests, where it prefers dense conifer, particularly Black Spruce and Balsam Fir.

The Chestnut-backed Chickadee prefers mature conifers particularly along the coastal rainforest of the Pacific Northwest. However they can be found along the coast from midde California to Southern Alaska.

Mountain Chickadee's prefer mixed forest habitats found in the Rocky Mountains and West, and rarely go below 3,000' even in winter.

Attracting Carolina Chickadees

Carolina feeders can be found at bird feeders throughout the southeast. Our chickadees seem to like the feeders that have black oil sunflowers, but they are also regular feeders at the "wild bird food" feeder as well.

Chickadees also are attracted to our suet feeders.
