Mr. Audubon named this bird when he found it in coastal South Carolina, but the Carolina Chickadee is found from the plains in Kansas and Texas all the way to New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This active bird is an insect eater and has specific habitat requirements.
No ghetto dweller; the Carolina Chickadee needs an uptown address that includes trees with cavities to nest in, shrubbery to hide in, and a tall canopy for a food source. The Carolina Chickadee gleans its insect diet from the tips of branches, so the multi-layered forest is where he prefers to make his home.
