Tufted Titmouse, Kingwood, Texas (October 9, 2021) — Image by Hugh Poland

The Tufted Titmouse is not found in the southwest but is common in eastern deciduous forests and
a frequent visitor to feeders. The large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest gives these
birds a quiet but eager expression that matches the way they flit through canopies, hang from twig
ends, and drop in to bird feeders. When a titmouse finds a large seed, you’ll see it carry the prize to
a perch and crack it with sharp whacks of its stout bill.
