Tufted Titmouse

“Peter-Peter” Bird:
Tufted Titmouse

The active and agile Tufted Titmouse is easily recognized by its jaunty crest of gray feathers, big black eyes, and rust-colored flanks. This familiar bird feeder visitor often joins mixed foraging flocks with other common backyard birds such as the White-breasted Nuthatch and Black-capped Chickadee.

Since the Tufted Titmouse is easily seen in the eastern United States and parts of southeastern Canada, you may already be familiar with it. But do you know how this little songbird got its name?
