Tufted Titmouse at the feeders

From 12.12

As previously mentioned in my post on Birding is Fun, I had the opportunity over the weekend to get some close up looks and a few shots (most did not focus well due to the closeness – 2-4 feet away) of the birds I saw.
The Tufted Titmouse seems a common bird in New England and can often be overlooked from a distance as a gray bland bird. But when looked at up close, they have a lot of personality calling in irritation, calling to share their food source and looking pretty. Pretty? look at these lashes and eyeliner and tell me they don’t have the look of a made up star. I encourage you to stay by your feeders, especially now during winter when the birds are hungrier and less shy and slowly move closer, and look at them up close. They are sweet and beautiful creatures, even the plainest have wonderful details to discover.
