Do you think this is a juvenile tufted titmouse? Once again, I'm stumped!
I'm too! Stumped that is. Cute image though!Cheers, Klaus
I think you have it spot on - a young of year Tufted Titmouse. Note the rust patch underwing, and generally coloration, and body type. The crest will develop later this Fall.Davewww.mi-birder.com
I'd say a Titmouse too. That red color under the wing says so to me. Two of them were at my feeders this morning. They are so delicate and adorable.
I agree that it is almost certainly a little titmouse. And what a cute little thing.
I'm going with the yes's on this on this one. What a pretty little bird!
I think it is for sure a titmouse - could be a youngster, but could also just not have its crest up...really, really cute.
Tufted titmouse... it could be a juvenile or it could be a molting adult. It seems like some flight feathers are being replaced, so the crest could be too.
Looks like a Tufted Titmouse, I agree. I am not the best bird ID'er and sometimes confuse them with Red Breasted Nuthatches, but your bird doesn't have the white stripes on the head that a RB Nuthatch would have. I will have to see what southern species I can flush up this weekend to post to my blog, meanwhile it's nice visiting the other nature blogs!
Great action shot, Shelley! The tufted titmouse has a very distinct huge dark eye and the beak is easy to ID as titmouse in your picture - good job!
Thank you my birding friends - it looks like we have a titmouse!
Nice picture, I love the berry in his mouth and his wing spread out!!!
I don't know what it is but it's so artsy and beautiful. Love the background.
It seems like my Titmouse are not showing their Tufted Crest that they are named after either. I have a post ready on my photos. Yours is better.
