Birds of the Sanctuary: Tufted Titmouse

Slightly larger than their cousin the Chickadee, these chattering, gregarious little guys are a lot of fun to watch, and I have quite a few of them hanging out year round. They sound quite similar to the Chickadee, but more harsh and emphatic, sometimes just repeating dee, dee, dee. And, like the Chickadee, they eat black oil sunflower seeds, peanuts and dried mealworms. During the winter, the faint rusty streaks under the wings are darker.
