When Ray & I first moved to Georgia, VT (1990) we had no tufted titmice.
After 1-2 years we started to see some go through the yard during migration times.
About 5-6 years ago years ago, they started to hang around and were noted
nesting 4 years ago. I think it is one of those expanding species. Maybe due to
the warming of the climate? Now we have titmice all year rund. Liz Alton
