Wineburgh-Lillienfield Family Unknown (22)

This little Tufted Titmouse was feasting on some type of small insect that was contained in the leaves of this small tree.  Tufted Titmice are grey birds with a top-knot crest and appealing big black eyes.  The call they make is like a person whistling for a dog to come.  Kind of like  a”Wee-whee-whee” that is repeated a few times.

These birds are primarily interested in eating insects but also like seeds, nuts and bites of fruit.  The male and female Titmice look-alike.  I have seen just a few of these fun birds here in my new neighborhood in Florida.  I took these pictures from the area across the street from my home on the banks of the rainfall collection basin, on July 1, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!Wineburgh-Lillienfield Family Unknown (25)

    • Hi Theresa, Yes, I think so too. They are very fun to watch and are sometimes interested in what the people around are up to. Have a super weekend!

  3. We have some here and I never know if they are male or female. So now i know there is no way to tell!

  4. These are great shots! This little bird drives me crazy because it’s so cute and doesn’t live in my area!

  5. Great shots of the Titmice…. I love these little birds. They and the Chickadees are always around the feeders. SO CUTE..

    Hugs,
