One of my favorite birds! Carolina Chickadees are very cute.

I just wanted to let you know that I have moved this spotting and several others of yours out of the Signs of Wildlife mission for you. That mission is for spottings of nests, feathers, animal tracks, etc. and not for the actual animals. Please make sure to read the mission descriptions carefully before submitting your spotting to it. Thanks!
