One of the cutest little birds you can imagine, the Tufted Titmouse.

They are common in the United States, but I still love seeing them in the wild.

This little beauty was deep in a trail I enjoy for both exercise and birding.

The cute tuft, little beak and body with those big dark eyes are irresistible.

I understand it is challenging to determine males and females by sight alone. Watching them behave and listening to them may tip you off.

My daughter and I affectionately call them the "Oh My Gosh!" Bird. I wasn't able to capture it here, but if you see one with their mouth open, imagine it saying "Oh My Gosh!" and try not to laugh.

I really enjoyed sharing a moment with this beautiful little bird.

I hope it gave you a smile too.

Lovely photos! I think you captured it's sweet expression very well; I can see why you enjoy them. I love the greenery of pine trees, so I would have liked to have seen even more pics like the last one with it facing forward or to the side. Such a cutey! :-)

I wanted more too but that was all I could get before this little cutie flew off! Yes, the pine tree was beautiful but when it jumped to that healthy branch it never turned around and then it was gone!

"Oh my gosh!" Lol...
