Hello bird watchers!
I'm horrible at this, and after looking through my field guide and still can't tell what this bird is. I spotted it in Massachusetts near the coast on April 20th (in case that helps).

Any ideas about the ID would be appreciated. Thanks!

Tufted Titmouse. Closely related to the yellow-bellied fender-scratcher.

aha. that's a great guess. My field guide shows a Tufted Titmouse adult looking quite a bit like this.
I bet you're right. Thanks!

Nice and close. They are actually closely related to the chickadees...and they usually hang out together....:)

I have a bunch of House Finches, Chipping Sparrows, and a Northern Cardinal hanging out with these guys. I'll keep an eye out for chickadees!
