Very Rare bird in Pennsylvania -- Like a Chickadee

Hello. Just saw a bird in backyard PA for first time in 40 years. A little smaller than a chickadee. Gray back, white belly. Very small. Fluttered when flying and indirect flight almost like a butterfly. Was at suet feeder. Not a junko, not black capped chickadee, Maybe something that came in on one of the recent storms we have had here in beginning march.?
