L. 5.75 in
Until recently, Oak Titmouse and Juniper Titmouse were considered parts of the same species called Plain Titmouse, Baeolophus inornatus. Because the Oak Titmouse inherited the scientific name from the parent species, there can be problems with which exact species is found using the gallery search below. There have been further proposals to split the subspecies cineraceus from Oak Titmouse into its own species which would then be called Cape Titmouse and be resident in Baja California.
Open oak and pine-oak woodlands.
The female builds nest with grass, moss, feathers, shredded bark in tree cavities. Incubation is 14 to 16 days, and young fledge in about 17 days.
Diet includes seeds, mostly from oaks, and a variety of invertebrates including leafhoppers and treehoppers.
