Got it finally! It has taken me 6 years to get a visual photo of this bird

We moved to this house six years ago and almost immediately we heard a very unique bird sing. My wife and daughter fell in love with its song. The only way I can describe it is Weee-Wooo. so as you can imagine that is what we call it. This is the best photo I have been able to get of it. Please help me identify it.

Thanks

Well Eric, my first thought when I looked at the photo was that it was a chickadee, but it is difficult to tell from the photo if it has any black on its throat. Your description of its song could fit for its slow long call. Lets see what our readers have to say.

Chickadees are a favorite of mine

Hi,
I really like the black capped chickadees they are so curious and really a TOUGH little bird. They always land near my head when i fill the feeders and are constantly checking out all my little feeders. The have that song you sited and in the spring and summer you can really here them all over. I like to mimmick them and they respond.

I live 13 miles from Richmond Indiana . You might want to check out my videos on these chickadees at ferddie2009 youtube

Thank you!! You were right!!! We just goggled it and the Black-Capped Chickadee is definitely our mystery bird! Turns out the song we hear comes from the males!! Thanks again!

Chickadee

I agree with Susan that it could be a Chickadee. I will send Susan photos that I have taken of our Chickadees.
