This pair of Tufted Titmice were very loudly singing while perched in the shady branches of the Magnolia Tree in my front yard. I spotted these birds doing something that I had never seen before. They flew over a short distance from the tree to the roof of my home and lay face-down with their wings spread out. The birds looked absolutely dead. After a few moments, first one got up and flew back to the Magnolia and then the other did the same thing. Perhaps they had been preening or had used the bird bath that is in my neighbor’s yard. I took the pictures in my front yard yesterday, April 7, 2013. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
