Got my first Carolina chickadee today at feeder!

Boy, those little guys are fast! Took it a few seconds to grab a mouthful of seeds from my tubular feeder, then off it flashed into the trees. If I was patient, I'd see it again in a few minutes as it came back for another mouthful of seeds. I conferred with a member of a local bird club to ascertain whether this little visitor was a Black Capped or Carolina chickadee. The latter was confirmed. Last week I saw a goldfinch feeding off a dried echinacea seed head. I wonder how long it will take the birds to discover my fountain.
