The tufted titmouse gathers food from the ground and from tree branches. It eats berries, nuts, insects, small fruit, snails, and seeds. Caterpillars constitute a major part of its diet during the summer. Titmice will stash food for later use. The titmouse can demonstrate curiosity regarding humans, and will sometimes perch on a window ledge and seem to be peering into the house. It is a regular visitor around bird feeders. Its normal pattern is to scout a feeder from cover, fly in to take a seed, then fly back to cover to eat it.
I’ve seen these, but not at my feeders. I have my fingers crossed — they’d be a great addition to the group!
Thank you very much, Linda. They love sunflower seeds. 🙂
Love these guys, often see them with Black-Capped Chickadees. Love hearing their ‘peter, peter, peter’ call.
