Tufted Titmouse
Tufted Titmouse are regulars at backyard bird feeders, especially in winter. They prefer sunflower seeds but will eat suet, peanuts, and other seeds as well
Habitat
Tufted Titmice nest in tree holes (and nest boxes), but they can’t excavate their own nest cavities. Instead, they use natural holes and cavities left by woodpeckers. These species’ dependence on dead wood for their homes is one reason why it’s important to allow dead trees to remain in forests rather than cutting them down
Location
Backyard, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA
Date taken
March, 2021
Scientific name
Baeolophus bicolor
Equipment used
Nikon D90, SIGMA 80-400/4.5-5.6 DG OS. plus a 1+1/4 extender. Hand held
The bird stands out well against the uncluttered background, and you’ve captured some subtle feather colors, too. Nicely done.
