Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Titmice

Enter Bird's Name in Search Box:


The titmice are mostly southern birds, with the exception of the Tufted Titmouse, whose range takes it into southern Ontario, Canada. There are five types of titmice found in North America including the Black-crested Titmouse, who until recently has been "split" from the Tufted Titmouse. The titmice are active birds and are easily identified and located by their constant chattering as they move about.

The Oak Titmouse and Juniper Titmouse are very similar in appearance. They have mostly grey-colored bodies and no real identification markers on them. These two birds are found in the southwestern states. There, you will also find the Bridled Titmouse that is easily recognized by the black barring on its face. The Black-crested Titmouse is found in southeastern Texas and into Mexico. The Tufted Titmouse has the biggest range and is seen anywhere in the eastern parts of the USA.
