CAMERA CRITTERS # 252

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.

I love your back yard birds, as much as I love mine :-)

Remember that photo challenge that I mentioned as a comment in your previous blog post? I said that you provided inspiration for a photograph for me to contribute to the photo challenge. You wanted to see my photo. I just uploaded a new blog post. Thanks again, Denise!

They are lovely little birds Denise, but they look like they don't belong in a snowy, cold winter.

Great sharp pics of your bird. You leave nice treats. I'd sneak into your backyard also for those peanuts.

He's a cute one. You do a good job bringing out the personality of your little visitors in your photos, Denise.

The Titmouse has to be one of the sweetest little birds to visit my feeders. I almost wish they could talk to me. :)
Wonderful shots for CC's Denise!
My favorite is the one of him looking at those peanuts. Lovely light in that one.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
It's snowing here!
