Our first two years in Texas we lived in Spring and the most regular visitors to our feeders were Tufted Titmice, among our favorite of all birds. So when we moved to Cypress almost 8 years ago, we were disappointed to find that Tufted Titmice only occasionally appeared in our yards. After a couple of years, we stopped seeing Titmice almost completely, perhaps because most oak trees have disappeared from our area.
So we were delighted late last week and then on the weekend when three Titmice turned up and kept exploring our backyard and those of our neighbors. Here's one of them.
