Bird Feeders : Tufted Titmouse
The Tufted Titmouse is a small, gray songbird. Its physical characteristics include gray feathers, big black eyes and forehead, and rust-colored flanks. It can be found mostly in places of North America. It is one of the most common songbirds in deciduous forests particularly in oak woods.
The diet of the Tufted Titmouse mostly consists of sunflower seeds, suet, nuts, mealworms, invertebrates, caterpillars, wasps, flies, eggs, and spider. The best type of feeder for the Tufted Titmouse is a tube feeder because Tufted Titmice are small and easily dominated birds. Nevertheless, hopper feeders are also fine to use. Make sure you feel the feeder with lots of their favorite black oil sunflower seeds. They eat these seeds by holding them between their feet and pounding the shell open with their bills.
To attract Tufted Titmice to your feeder, make sure you have a lot of nearby trees and trunks because the Tufted Titmice like to reside in natural cavities in tree trunks that are either natural or holed by woodpeckers. In mounting your feeder, make sure it is about 30 feet above ground because Tufted Titmice prefer much higher feeder locations. Another reason to have lots of trees around is because Tufted Titmice do not really like too much open space.
