How to Attract Tufted Titmouse

A common sight around eastern woodlands and bird feeders ÔÇô the Tufted Timouse is a cheerful, small blue/gray bird. The Tufted Titmouse eats insects while breeding in spring/summer but prefers peanuts and sunflower seeds at feeders over colder months (when they flock with Chickadees, Nuthatches, and Woodpeckers). This bird will also eat wild seed and nuts (likes acorns). The Tufted Titmouse is a cavity nester, so they may use a nesting box if provided. Adding a birdbath increases your chances of attracting a Tufted Titmouse.
