Thursday's Tid-Bit Re The Tufted Tit Mouse


Cam, "my" female cardinal, and I have been engaged in the process of tying up loose ends for our sequel to the book  Words In My Beak Volume One.



This means I've been going through a vast number of images to determine which ones will make the cut regarding being included in volume two.

I won't be giving away the story by telling you that the bird type known as a tufted tit mouse (who is featured in the image atop this blog entry, where he/she is spending time in my rooftop garden), will be featured in volume two.

Here's what a web-page (for BirdNote) has to say re this creature: "A Tufted Titmouse has just about everything you could ask for in a backyard bird. Petite and strikingly elegant, it’s as perky as a chickadee. In fact, it’s a cousin to the chickadee. And as it comes boldly to your seed or suet feeders, the Tufted Titmouse will even hang upside down like an acrobat. So what’s in that peculiar name, 'titmouse'? The name descends from two ancient Anglo-Saxon root words — 'tit,' from a word meaning something small. And 'mouse,' from a word applied to any small bird, as well as that little rodent."

I am so grateful that this awesome creature has visited my place, and Cam, along with yours truly look forward to sharing our experiences (within volume two) of being around her.

For now, I'll whet your appetite by sharing a few more pictures (below) of this sweet character visiting my place and availing him/herself of nourishment from one of my bird feeders.



It seems this little creature is not so keen on having his/her picture taken as evidenced below, where he/she seems to be using a wing to indicate he/she is done wth being photographed.
