Little Birds with Big Eyes


The Tufted Titmouse is one of the cutest of the songbirds.  Titmice have arrived here with Carolina Wrens.  The Tufted Titmice are grey birds with large, appealing black eyes, a small crest on top of their head, and apricot coloring on their sides under the wings.  The Titmice eat insects but they love seeds fruits and nuts.

My neighbor has put up a bird feeder which has Sunflower Seeds and other bird seed.  I plan to add a bird feeder to my back yard.   In addition to having bird feeders up, the smaller birds may come around more often now that the neighborhood Hawk has recently been run-off by the Crows.   I took these pictures on September 29, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
