First Sign of Spring: Tufted Titmouse

Photo: purza7

No matter what the groundhog says today, the Tufted Titmice in my neighborhood are starting to sing, which means, it's mating season! Spring is coming. Soon these birds will be making their nests in tree cavities. Owls are already on nests, and the Downy Woodpeckers and Carolina Chickadees are starting to sing and drum as well. Its official. Its (almost) Spring!

Chickadees and titmice are indeed singing right now, but it will take them quite a while and a LOT of songs to overcome their inhibitions about getting too close to one another in order to accomplish what birds and bees and educated fleas to do produce babies.
