Guess that bird...

This cute little thing is a year round visitor here.    We call them the you-hoo birds because this variety [extra points if you guess the variety!] sounds like it's calling 'yoouu-hoo' when you hear it from a distance.

Hint:  The variety has a state name in it.   When you hear them from close by they say 'See-bee, see-bay'.   Answer below the fold.

 Answer:  Carolina Chickadee.   

There's an east west line somewhere around Indianapolis and south of that line we get Carolina Chickadees; north of the line they get Black Capped Chickadees.   They're pretty much identical, but they have different songs.    Black Capped Chickadees say, 'cheeeese-burg-er'
