Tiny Titmouse

LC0426



Would you believe that I have never seen a Titmouse up here in Wisconsin?

LC0428



But when I go to Missouri I get to see them.

Thankfully, they let me share some space with them while I'm visiting.

  2. What's the plural of "titmouse" anyway? "Titmice?" "Titmouses?"

    So I guess you get what?... legmouses in Wisconsin? (Legmice? Legmouse?) My kinda bird... I'm a legmouse from way back!

  3. The plural? Teetmice.
    So, not a mouse then.

  16. Very cool! One of the best things for me when I visit my sister in Conn. is seeing these little beauties on their birdfeeders.

  17. I am very impressed that you know the name of the bird. The birds around my house are known scientifically as brown birds, those black birds and the fat birds.

  27. I love learning the names of birds & critters when I visit here ... and am thinking about picking up some bird books to see if I can learn more about some of the birds in my area ... especially once I take my new camera over the the wetlands and catch the migrating birds. All the photos are great, but the last one will stay in my mind methinks.
    Hugs and blessings,

  28. They are very cute but why would anyone name them such a thing?

  29. CUTE! We have them here in NM. The birds I miss are cardinals, bluebirds and blue jays.
