The Tufted Titmouse, Parus bicolor, is one of the small birds common to many feeders. It has a very long range, from southern Maine down to Florida and west to the middle of Texas and eastern Nebraska. It likes to live in forests and groves, and loves to visit feeders.
The tufted titmouse is is grey with a white breast, with a tuft of feathers on its head. Note that these feathers are not always tufted - sometimes the titmouse can flatten down these head-feathers, giving it a completely round head profile.
Tufted titmice have an even call of "Pe-ter, pe-ter, pe-ter", in medium speed, with the first note being higher than the second.
Titmice love sunflower seeds, but will also eat suet and mixed seed.
