From an MDOsprey post from Jim Stasz (11/9/2005): "I might add something that is not in most field guides. If you look at where the black of the head meets the nape, on Carolina the black is rounded and has a limited boundary with the gray back and on Black-capped, the nape is squared with a larger shared boundary with the gray of the back."

Below: A Black-capped Chickadee at Stemmers Run in Cecil Co., Maryland (2/20/2011). As this location is south of the C&D Canal, this site might also be considered the Eastern Shore. When this bird became agitated, it even did some singing, which I hadn't previously heard from an irrupting Black-capped.
