This rather tame, active, crested little bird is common all year in eastern forests, where its whistled peter-peter-peter song may be heard even during mid-winter thaws. It is related to the chickadees, and like them it readily comes to bird feeders, often carrying away sunflower seeds one at a time. Feeders may be helping it to expand its range: in recent decades, Tufted Titmice have been steadily pushing north. You can read more about this adorable bird on the Audubon website.
The Tufted Titmouse is one of the cutest backyard birds there is! I've got quite a few of them that frequent my feeders throughout the year in all kinds of weather. Here is my tribute to this sweet bird. Prints are now available in my online shop!
This bird will also be one of the featured dozen in my 2020 Desktop Bird Calendar, which will be available later this week.
