A Clever Titmouse

He came for breakfast,
as I was trying to decide what I would write about today.

He got his seed, but could not crack it open.
I was going to say "he got his nut"
but something about that seemed wrong!!

Can you see the sunflower seed between his little feet??

He finally opens it and enjoys the nut inside.

Must be a male,
after enjoying a good meal, he fluffs his feathers.

Saying thank you for the seeds.


Do you think this is my good side??

Or perhaps this is my better side??

He was done and he flew off.
These pictures were taken 5 minutes ago,
straight out of the camera, only the "seed" picture was cropped.

And just like that, I had today's entry.
I barely got out of the office chair.
I do get work done occasionally, but I mostly goof off.

Good thing I "work" for the hubs!!

  7. The beautiful nature and fantastic photographs. I am greeting

  8. So, so pretty perched in that tree! I may be the only one, but I honestly believe that they pose for you!!

  9. What a pretty little bird. He hung around just long enough to say thank you for the snack. Sunflower seeds are my fav - how'd you know?


  10. He is so darn cute! Especially when he's all fluffy. I just wanna hold him.

  11. He is a wee cutie for sure. Wonderful pictures Debbie.

  12. Debbie, awesome series on the Titmouse. You got some cute captures. It must be nice to be able to goof off at work. LOL! Have a great weekend!

  13. Good shots, are 90% luck, and 10% skill. Or at least I think so. Your little bird is so cute, love the captions you added.

  14. You can't get fired - I like that. And the pictures - must be a male bird though. Nice shots without any altercations. sandie

  15. Who can work when there are birds to watch? I love this series.

  16. Really cool shots, Debbie! I think he was quite proud of finally getting the seed open!

  17. Śliczny i ptaszek i pięknie Ci do zdjęcia pozował. Pozdrawiam.
    Beautiful bird and beautiful, and you pose for a photo. Yours.

  18. What a cutie, and so cooperative. I have found them to be a bit more cautious than some of our other back yard visitors.

  19. Wow, great photos of the little guy! He must've thought you were cute to puff out like that for you!

  20. Lovely post and pictures! I loved this one and it was magazine worthy. Maybe you should publish a book of beautiful pictures of nature. These pictures were so good.
