Physical Traits: This small gray-crested bird has large dark eyes with a white breast. He is related closely to the chickadee, and his sound is "Peter! Peter! Peter!"
Habitat: The titmouse has a bowl shaped nest of plant fibers and feathers. They will nest in a hole in a rotten tree or in a nest box. He lives in forests, thickets and visits suburban feeders. He likes seeds, berries and nuts. Commonly found in pairs or family groups.
Recommended Feeder: Large hopper, large tube feeder, platform, small hopper, small tube
Feeder Tips: The titmouse are sure-footed and need no perches. We recommend a rough-wood feeder with openings large enough for the titmouse's beak. Hang your feeder in or near a tree, and always use a squirrel guard, because sunflower seeds and nuts are squirrels' favorites, too.
States and Regions Found: Southeastern Canada, eastern United States and northeastern Mexico
