Note also the relatively longer tail compared to Carolina Chickadee. The Black-caps that breed in the western three MD counties are smaller than the irruptive variety so they really stand out. Please send some to St. Mary's where we're still waiting for a first county record!

Carolina Chickadees have become quite scarce in the yard in recent years, so it is nice to see the Chickadee cuz show up, if that's what it is.
Starling put in an appearance at the same time...
