Tufted

When last we saw a Tufted Titmouse on this blog, it was eating a dead Winter Wren. That was surprising. But here we’re back to a more regular diet, of seeds and nuts in winter; this bird briefly emerged from a thick conglomeration of shrubbery with something edible in bill.There were three in the thicket, but only one came out in the bold.These birds will often take the largest seeds they can find, hold them between their feet, and hammer at them with their bills to open them up. They will also make a racket of alarm calls if predators are near. Always listen to the birds!
