Titmice at the Feeder

Tufted Titmice are here in the yard in a big way.  The flock of Tufted Titmice is not a large one but the grey, buff, Apricot and black birds are not shy about coming to the bird feeder several times a day.  Sometimes there will be four or five at a time vying for space on the feeder.  One will sit on the porch railing acting as a look-out while the others take turns getting the Millet or Black Oil Sunflower Seeds.  They also occasionally find an insect or two on the porch or in the grass next to the house.

These are intelligent cute birds with their large eyes and top-knot crest. Yesterday this bunch of Titmice had to look out for a visiting house cat that was interested in all the birds hanging out around the feeder.  Lucky for the birds, the cat was too afraid to approach the house and quickly left the area.   Both cats and dogs occasionally just show up and stroll around the yard..  The dogs and cats just go back home to their own yards after a while.  I took these pictures in my yard yesterday, Nov. 1, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
