The Titmouse Poses

Today was a work day, and at someone's bird feeder I tried really hard to capture a nervous tufted titmouse. They don't hold still for long.

The easiest way to identify them is that they are a small gray bird with a crest. But, do you think I can manage to catch that crest lifted with the camera? Nope! However, he seems to want to play hide and seek.

They are so cute, aren't they? I really enjoy this joyful little creatures. At least they make me feel joyful. I don't know why, but they do.

I love birds. I spend hours at outside too trying to capture good shots.

I too wait as you did for him to show off his crown. But, usually an event like that happens just after I put down my camera.

I love to see bird pictures and these are wonderful. Birds make me happy!

Happy day to you!:-)

They are very quick! Lots of them at my feeders these days and yet to get a great clear picture of them. Have a great weekend!

Chuck- I think their nervousness makes them look very high-energy, and thus we envy their joy

Jackie- some day I'll have more time to sit at someone's feeder and get a decent shot

John- proper in that I take whatever the birds are doing?

Eileen- they really are cute, but so elusive!

Shelly- lots of little birds bring on an "aw!"

reena- well, if you can't get a clear picture I don't feel so incompetent!
