Titmice in the Trees

The Tufted Titmice here live in the fringe of Oaks and Hickories along the street in front of my driveway.  They fly up to grab a bite of seed at the bird feeder at my front porch.  Every now and then, a Tufted Titmouse will stick around the yard and perch in a pond-side Oak.  I took these pictures a few days ago here.

The little Tufted Titmice are ever-so-interesting to watch.  Some will come up to the porch railing to crack-open their Sunflower Seed prize.  Some will also spend a few moments just perched on the bird feeder pole, basking in the sun.  It has turned cold here so most of the birds just quickly come to the feeder and then leave for their cozy nest homes elsewhere.  The little grey and buff and Apricot-colored birds are sweet and I was very glad to have had them here.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    such beautiful little birds. i love them, too.

    • Hi Theresa, I just tried to post a comment on your excellent blog post about the Roadrunner. No such luck. For some reason, every now and then, WordPress open I.D. does not believe I am Wildlifewatcher. Oh well. It comes and goes but it is annoying. So, know I am reading your great blog. Have a super good coming week.

  2. Love our little Titmice… They flit in and out to and from the feeders off and on all day long… So cute!!!!! I’ve been cleaning out the bird feeders today… All of the rain left some mushy stuff which I had to throw away… The feeders do need cleaning out on occasion —so I’m glad I did it…


    • Hi Betsy, Great little birds! We are in for a real cold snap Tues. and Wed. with a forecast high of only 26 or so on Tues. and about 13 that night. Too cold!!! Have a fine coming week!

  3. They are such pretty little things! THey look very fragile, but they probably are, like most little birds, pretty tough.

  4. I like their big round black eyes.

  5. The Titmouse are cuties and great visitors to your feeders. Hope you are having a happy day!
