Garden Guests: Tufted Titmouse

The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I'm beginning a new series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.

Here is a Tufted Titmouse.  While they will come to either sunflower or peanut feeders, they actually prefer berries.  Plant natives like elderberry.  Suet can also be offered.

  2. Stopping by from Your Gonna Love It Party. I am already a follower but I couldn't resist taking a look at your little bird and then I found your music and the Tuesday Tunes - what a great party. Stop by and check out our song and we would love to have you share your Tufted Titmouse post on our Thursday Four Seasons Blog Hop.

  4. I love birdwatching. We have several Titmice that come to the feeder when we put sunflower seeds out.
    Stopping by from the Brag About It Tuesday link up!

  5. One thing I am missing at our new home Marci is the birds! We had bluejays, starlings, fat robins and even hawks! The trees aren't as mature in our new location so, no place for nesting :-( My plan is change that up! I will be getting my birdbath set up and some feeders going to invite my winged guests over :-) Thanks for sharing this at the party this week! I will be featuring this post on my Facebook page and pinning to the You're Gonna Love It Tuesday board on Pinterest!

  6. Ow wonderful to have all the wildlife, I have to confess I hated the parrots last year they ate all my fruit from the trees but they are just beautiful.

  7. I have what seems to be 50 of these cute little birds that come and visit my feeder. Love them and they totally distract me from getting anything done.
