I used to be an avid backyard birder, with a variety of feeders and types of birds.

I recently hung a feeder where I am staying at this time. Carmel, Maine.
FINALLY the chickadees graced the feeder. But there were other gray birds flitting around & certainly did not sound like my chickadees.
They resembled black eyed juncos, yet had white around the eyes ~ I believe I have a family of gray jays at my feeder. There are definitely babies being cared for.
Unfortunately I no longer have my bird identifying books. but luckily I found them easily enough online.
They come and feed for about five minutes. Leave and return after about 10 or 15 minutes for another round of feeding. Black oil sunflower seeds are being brought to several in the trees ~ they crack them by pecking at the shell to crack it then begin to make noise for more. Simply awesome!

Chickadee cousins ? NEW
by: Margaret Mariam

Could they be tufted titmice ? They are small, but bigger than chickadees. And they LOVE sunflower seeds.
