Tufted Titmouse

This little gray Tufted Titmouse was just one of many that was waiting to snatch a seed from the feeder and then fly off to a distant branch to shell and eat it. It seems like they use a lot of energy to fly back and forth to eat their food! When I was a kid growing up in Nashville, we had a titmouse that came to our feeder for 2 years in a row that had just one leg. We never knew what awful trauma it suffered to lose a limb. It was amazing to watch that little guy handle the seeds.
