Tufted Titmouse

Tufted Titmouse

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 sometimes will perch on a window ledge and seem to be peering into the house. It may cling to the windows and walls of buildings seeking prey in wasp and hornet nests. 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.

Yellow-rumped Warbler

During the winter, when the Yellow-rumped Warbler is not in breeding season, it often inhabit resourceful open areas with shrubs or scattered the trees, that can provide it with some source of food supply, such as bayberries and insects, etc. Open areas preferred by the yellow-rumped warbler may include agricultural and residential areas, secondary forests, and shrublands, etc., these habitats generally do not have very dense vegetation; the species can also inhabit forests that are relatively open, such as mangroves, pine forests, and even coffee plantations, etc. The yellow-rumped warbler tends to have more diversified habitats during the migration process, though it is sometimes found in desert areas of the U.S. southwest, it is more common for the species to inhabit alpine habitats during migration as it tends to arid lowland areas.

  1. A great pleasure to see your beautiful songbirds here, HJ. The tufted titmouse photo is lovely, and I liked that you included their curious feeder-eating habit of one seed at a time, which I find endearing. Also very much enjoyed the yellow-rumped warbler, a bird we have year-round in Calif. Cheers!

    • The Tufted Titmouse stays in my backyard the year round. The Yellow- rumped Warbler comes once a year. They are both nice and pacific birds.
      Thanks a lot, my friend. Cheers! 🙂

  2. Love your little Titmouse HJ, looks like a great bird to have around the house. Our resident Miners do similar, as you watch the coalition all check around the eaves and gutters for spiders and wasps.
