Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

The other day I spotted this Tufted Titmouse on the forest floor that is my backyard.  It also was flitting around a small pine tree.  I watched this particular bird for several minutes while it hunted for bugs among the fallen leaves.  It would hop over and search for the bug and then fly to a nearby branch.  This bird is a good hunter because I saw it get several bugs.  It has keen eyesight and is persistent.  The Tufted Titmouse eats insects and also seeds.  The Tufted Titmouse is a small perky bird that is grey in color with a slightly peach-colored belly.  It has a cute top-knot crest, large black eyes, and a wedge-shaped pointed beak or bill.  I always enjoy hearing the whistle song and call of the Tufted Titmouse as it reminds me of a person whistling for a dog to come.  I love seeing the songbirds here in my yards!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
