Last week a tiny ball of fluff that turned out to be a baby titmouse was being anxiously chirped over by parents who were very agitated; all of a sudden, one at a time 7 more adult titmice flew in to help protect baby. Lost sight of all 10 in thick shrubs.No further sign this week. Nancy Goodrich, Burlington
