A blue-gray songbird with a resounding echo, the Tufted Titmouse is a common and welcome sight in deciduous forests and backyard feeders. Their distinctly large black eyes and unique blue-gray plumage gives these birds a distinct look that delights both casual and committed birders in the eastern US.
