With its tufted head feathers a familiar sight throughout nearly all of the Eastern United States, the tufted titmouse has become a regular visitor to backyard feeders. Berries, seeds and nuts all are readily eaten, as well as insects and caterpillars. The TT will collect food from feeders and bring it back to its nest box or premade tree cavity home.
Non-migratory, the same tufted titmouse will usually return to its favorite feeder(s) again and again.
