With the extreme cold and snow here in west central Ohio I have been hanging close to home keeping and eye and my camera focused on whats happening in my backyard. Although the Tufted Titmouse is not rare in my area it has been some time since I have seen them around my place.
Here’s what Cornell Labs says about this cute little critter.
Tufted Titmice are acrobatic foragers, if a bit slower and more methodical than chickadees. They often flock with chickadees, nuthatches, and woodpeckers and are regular visitors to feeders, where they are assertive over smaller birds. Their flight tends to be fluttery but level rather than undulating . You’ll find Tufted Titmice in most eastern woodlands below 2,000 feet elevation, including deciduous and evergreen forests. Tufted Titmice are also common visitors at feeders and can be found in backyards, parks, and orchards
