(23) Carolina Chickadee

The Carolina Chickadee, the Tufted Titmouse, the White-breasted Nuthatch, the Brown-headed Nuthatch, and the Brown Creeper often roam the woods in small bands. For hours the woods may be perfectly quiet until the arrival of this noisy entourage. It is a cavity nester and will occasionally take up residence in a bluebird nest box. These birds like the others in this family are insect eaters.
