Wild Birds Unlimited's No-mess blend is very attractive to titmice. In fact the shelled sunflower and peanuts in the blend are the favorite of many feeder birds. Tufted Titmice typically select one seed at a time and hide it within 130 feet of the feeder, under bark or under objects on the ground. You can also add a suet, seed cylinders or mealworm feeders to keep these birds happy.
Males and females form pairs that persist until the death of one of the mates. The titmouse family bond is so strong that the young from one breeding season will often stay with their parents long enough to help them with nesting and feeding duties the following year. They are fairly confident birds and can be trained to come at the sound of human voices and take food from their hands, though not as easily as their cousins, the black-capped chickadees.
