Published on Feb 12, 2014

A Tufted Titmouse finds a bonanza of seed all to itself high in the Great Smokey Mountains. It makes repeated trips stocking up the seeds in a secret cache and eating a few. Generally these are lower elevation birds, but this is at 4,000 elevation. Their eyes are quite evocative and their faces quite expressive.

This little one (still haven't figured out a name yet) has been following me around since the autumn. He has yet to land on my hand. For some reason I have NEVER had a tufted titmouse land on my hand. I find this strange because there are sooo many of them. They circle me and wait for me to throw them a peanut.

The one in this video is a tough bird. His feathers are a mess because he gets in many fights. He is jealous of the nuthatch. He watches the nuthatch land on my hand and will yell at him:) He has attacked my nuthatch friend many times. But the nuthatch knows how to fight back...I love em both:) Perhaps some day this titmouse will land on my hand!

I finally was able to get a good shot of the white throated sparrow. They surround me on the ground and come closer to me each time I go outside. They like me to throw them half a peanut. I love em! They will be leaving me soon for cooler climates:( The juncos will go with them.
