Inquisitive Tufted Titmouse

Photo by Dawn Huczek
Tufted Titmice forage actively on branches, sometimes on the ground, eating mainly insects, especially caterpillars, but also seeds, nuts and berries. They will store food for later use.

They tend to be curious about their human neighbors and can sometimes be spotted perched near windows to watch what's going on inside. They are more cautious at bird feeders. They like to scout the feeder from the cover of trees or bushes, fly to the feeder, take a seed, and fly back to cover to eat it.
