Tufted Titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor )



Tufted Titmouse 
(Baeolophus bicolor)

"Tufted Titmice eat mainly insects in the summer, including caterpillars, beetles, ants and wasps, stink bugs, and treehoppers, as well as spiders and snails. Tufted Titmice also eat seeds, nuts, and berries, including acorns and beech nuts. Experiments with Tufted Titmice indicate they always choose the largest seeds they can when foraging."

Please see Cornell Labs for more information.

What an interesting bit of information! Now I know why they are the ones who primarily eat the peanuts in shells I put out!
