"Tufted Titmouse"


Knoxville, US
          

We finally had a warm day here in Tennessee and I was able to haul the big lens out and have some fun! This little guy paid me a kindly visit. Shot with a D800 in DX, 200-400 @ 400.

Great photo! I enjoyed the warm day, too! Big improvement over a week ago, for sure.

I get a lot of these little birds at my feeder and the nearby perches, but they are FAST and very skittish. I'm going to have to spend some time in the blind to get a good image.

Yes! They are very elusive for such a familiar and social bird. I shot this through an open window which really helped.

Nice to see winter finally release its evil grip, isn't it??

I gotten a couple of these as well, but not nearly as nice as this one. I haven't been able to even get a faceook worthy image yet. Hawks are a different story. Not sure why a couple of them look so washed out in my gallery.

About 35 years ago, I used to get a ton of these(titmice) in my yard at another place. They were not shy at all.

But, I have seen more bluebirds this year than all that I have ever seen total in my entire life. They can be very curious.

Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like you need to get some more sunflower feeders out! LOL. I've had mine up for about 8 years now. I guess I have regular visitors. I usually have lots of bluebirds, too, but haven't seen many lately...
