Tufted Titmice are found in most eastern woodlands below 2,000 feet elevation, including deciduous and evergreen forests. With silvery gray feathers above and white below, and a rusty or peach-colored wash down the flanks, they’re also easily recognized by their large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest. A black patch just above the bill makes the bird look snub-nosed.
This little gray bird with an echoing voice can be is a frequent visitor to our feeders. Once it grabs a seed, it will take the seed to a tree branch and crack it with sharp its bill. They are acrobatic foragers and often flock with chickadees, nuthatches, and woodpeckers.
