A Gray-tufted Titmouse in the tree next to the back deck.  He is one of my favorite little visitors.  It had snowed light this day.

 He landed on the rail here....

and then hopped down onto the deck to feed on the peanuts.

It always amazes me that he can pick up a peanut that is almost half his size, and fly back up into the trees where I will often see him crack open the shell and eat the nut.


Thank you Misty for hosting Camera Critters.  I love this meme and always look forward to it each Saturday.
