Tufted Titmouse Identification

The Four Keys to ID

  • Size & Shape

    Tufted Titmice look large among the small birds that come to feeders, an impression that comes from their large head and eye, thick neck, and full bodies. The pointed crest and stout bill help identify titmice even in silhouette.
