Tufted Titmouse

 

Temperatures in Indiana have subsided from the 90’s into more comfortable high 70’s/low 80s for a few days, so we decided to check out a small park to get in some nature walking (and hopefully me some birding).

The birds were there but keeping their hiding spot a secret.  I had my eye on this young Tufted Titmouse flitting from branch to branch, playing ‘cat and mouse’ with me as I tried to get a photo.

And then it flew to an open branch and lingered just long enough…..  Click!

Tufted Titmouse

 

And then the Tufted Titmouse was gone!  It’s been a long time since I’ve captured this species, so I am tickled with this photo.

  1. So beautiful photo of Tufted Titmouse Donna 🙂 I like the green leafs behid the bird. The background is so energetic and fresh in color. First time I get to know Tufted Titmouse. I checked from Google do we have it in Finland – NO we don´t have. Beautiful little bird! Have a great weekend !

  2. Glad it has cooled off for you. It’s almost a little too cool for me right now and I could use a few more weeks of ‘summer like’ weather. Oh well, at least it isn’t too hot to go blueberry picking again, but fall is just around the corner. I can feel it in the nighttime air here in northern WI 😏

    • I think we have a couple more days of reprieve before the temps return into the upper 80’s. At least the humidity is not near as bad as the mid-Atlantic region. I can only imagine your cooler temps, since here it’s a bit ‘chilly’ at sunrise. Hopefully, we’ll both see more summer-like weather for a few more weeks. 😎

  3. Nice shot, Donna. Good thing that he moved to an open branch. These birds are always moving away within a second of perching. 🙂

  4. Nice capture of the moment. they are such cute little birds, one of my mother’s favorites when we lived in the east. The temperature has been the same here, today’s drop feels cold in comparison, but I am looking forward to a wonderful sleep tonight.:)

  5. I’m glad the little titmouse gave you enough time for a photo, Donna. When (if) you come out west, keep your eyes and camera ready for a Juniper Titmouse. I don’t see them often, and get to take pictures of them even less, as they don’t sit still for very long. 🙂

  6. Such a thrill when they cooperate… I seem to be a bit lacking in the patience department to be able to catch that cooperation very often.
