Late last summer, I heard an unusual sound -- over and over and over again.  It was loud and clear, but I didn't know if it was a bird, a tree frog or some kind of insect/bug.   I even did an internet search trying to find out just what I was hearing.  Except I couldn't find anything because I couldn't accurately describe the sound. 

I now know it's described as "wheedle-wheedle-wheedle" or "peter-peter-peter"

As the weather turned colder, I no longer heard the sound... 

Early in February, I saw a new bird visitor in my back yard.  I only caught a glimpse of it at first and it was so fast as it moved between the tree branches.  

Finally, I was able to get a few photos.  My new visitor is a Tufted Titmouse!  They have such a cute, happy expression. 

A few days after my first glimpse of this little bird, I heard that sound again.  I'm finally able to identify where the sound comes from -- it's the Tufted Titmouse's song

I hear the Tufted Titmouse much more than I see them.  Their song is so loud and clear.  I can even hear it when I'm in the house.

Until next time...

  7. What a cute bird. I guess he's called a tufted titmouse because of his tufted hair on top of his head! :)

  8. He is a cutie!! I'm afraid I've never seen one here, Pam--we seem to have the same old birds day after day... I'd love to see something different :)

  10. Pam I love your bird pictures. I am trying real hard to feed the birds consistently, but I still don't have the variety like you.
