This little bird is my son’s favorite visitor. He says the bird has “cool creature powers,” as the bird can jump along vertically up our back fence. I believe this is an oak titmouse. All I know is it’s cute, and my son loves it.
Also, I’m looking for some suggestions. For bird identification, I’m currently using the 1988 version of the Western Birds Audubon Handbook. Can any birders out there recommend a better book for me to use? Or is this one sufficient? I’d love to actually know what I’m seeing when I’m out and about. Thanks!
