I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. Psalms 77: 6

A song bird, Tufted Titmouse
Came last night outside of our house
To whistle two notes of "pe-ter, pe-ter."
Today he communed on the feeder.
He said he didn't want to miss,
Singing Happy birthday to my sis.

Poetry by me, AJP

I am delighted the Tufted Titmouse hopped on the feeder this morning. He arrived early last evening to sit in the brush under the window..At that time he was watching the other birds eat...

We had not seen this species around since 2009 ...What makes it more special is that it is my sister Bonnie's birthday today...She is a retired Music Teacher...Of course I had to tell her this morning on the phone about this cute little song bird when I wished her a happy birthday.

Here is what I read about the Tufted Titmouse in my Reader's Digest North American Wildlife Book.

"Their ringing songs varies; usually it is a rapid two-note whistle---pe-ter, pe-ter..Titmice are relatives of the chickadees. and this species has a number of chickadee like calls."
