Tufted Titmouse

Tufted Titmouse has returned!

My bird book says they are year round
residents in my area,
yet I do not see them in the winter.

It is exciting to see them again.

Watching them be successful at the feeders

means they just might stay around.
I hope so!

I'll trade you a boatload of Titmice for just one Oriole Sherry. :c) Glad they are hanging around.

Cheryl said...

What a beautiful little bird, looks so gentle. Lovely Sherry.

Drop by when you have a moment to see the bees around the units.

Lisa at Greenbow said...

It is fun to have them tooting around the garden during summer. They are such busy little birds.

Mel said...

That's a cool hairdo ;)

Mary said...

Ditto what Jayne said. I have Titmice all year. Never an Oriole.

Your photos are fabulous. You are getting better, dear.

Q said...

Dear Jayne,
They are very cute little birds..
The Orioles come in pairs, do you want two Baltimores or Orchards?
I am needing some blue at the feeders..

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
I am so excited the female bees are out! Now they will lay eggs in your bee boxes and the process will start all over again. This is very wonderful. Thank you for showing the Mason bees, they are charming.
I think the Tufted Titmouse is a darling!
I enjoy having them come tot he feeders.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I do enjoy them. I think they are very, very cute!

Q said...

Dear Mel,
I think the "tuft" just makes this little bird irresistible.

Q said...

Dear Mary,
They are sweet little ones...
Nice you have them about all year.
I am hoping for all sorts of birds in the blooming Dogwood. I think the background makes for lovely pics!

Karen Owen said...

Now I DO see these, and they are sweet!

Q said...

Dear Karen,
They are so cute!
When ever I see the Tufted Titmice I just want to invite them in.
Glad they are about in your gardens.

Great shots of the Titmice, Sherry. What a difference a couple of hundred miles south makes. We have them year round, but more in the winter. Orioles we may see once a year -- briefly.

Q said...

Hi Marvin,
I bet you have all sorts of different birds and bugs and blooms than I do. Your growing season is longer too I bet.
The Peony may not grow too much farther south than where I am.
I really enjoy seeing all your bugs. I am learning from you.
Thank you.
