The Black-capped Chickadee's song of �fee-bee� and the Carolina
Chickadee's �fee-bee, fee-bay� can be heard throughout Greater
Cleveland, as chickadees are perhaps one of the most common birds
found at Ohio feeders. While the Carolina Chickadee is
slightly smaller and lacks white on its wings, both birds are
strikingly similar and prefer suet and sunflower seeds.
Get hands-on experiences with the free-flying chickadee in
Cleveland Metroparks with a wingful of activities this January:
