    Tufted Titmouse w/ orange throat, Massachusetts, USA

    Any thoughts on this orange-throated and orange-washed titmouse? I've seen thousands of titmice and never seen one like this, nor can I find any documentation of others. Thank you! -TKbird

Check out Macaulay Library for a better idea of typical appearance (although keep in mind that trickier...
