About the Tufted Titmouse
Tufted Titmouse

The Tufted Titmouse is a small songbird related to birds in the chickadee family. Their breeding habitat is deciduous and mixed woods in southeastern Canada and the eastern United States. They nest in a hole in a tree, either a natural cavity or sometimes an old woodpecker nest.

Tufted Titmice forage actively on branches, sometimes on the ground, mainly eating insects, especially caterpillars, but also seeds, nuts and berries. They will store food for later use. Their loud call Peter! Peter! Peter! can alert a birdwatcher to their nearby presence.

The Titmouse's range is expanding northwards, possibly with the increased availability of food at bird feeders.
