A common residential species, the Tufted Titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor) has begun to frequent the feeders at the Visitor's Center. In the wintertime, titmice will hoard food in preparation for the upcoming cold months. They love sunflower seeds, suet, peanuts, and most seeds supplied by backyard birders. When walking around the building or trails, be sure to listen for the whistled peter-peter-peter of this small songbird.
