The Black-crested Titmouse is a small songbird that lives in a small range in southern Oklahoma, central Texas and northeastern Mexico.
Black-crested Titmice are closely related to Tufted Titmice. In fact, the Black-crested was once considered a sub-species of the Tufted. The Black-crested Titmouse has rusty sides, a white belly, and grey upperparts. The black-tipped crest is usually erect.
Black-crested Titmice are cavity nesters. Their preferred nesting habitat is woodland, scrubland, or nestboxes near human habitation (yards, parks).
