This fat fellow makes me laugh because he is so very plump! Tufted Titmice nest in tree holes (and nest boxes), but they can’t excavate their own nest cavities. Instead, they use natural holes and cavities left by woodpeckers. These species’ dependence on dead wood for their homes is one reason why it’s important to allow dead trees to remain in forests rather than cutting them down!

Photo #5 is a Black-Crested Titmouse, who was considered the same species as the Tufted Titmouse for a while, but they are distinct both genetically and vocally. They are located only in parts of Texas and northeastern Mexico. I have made Mr. Black Crested Titmouse a little slimmer than his cousin! Let me know in the message box if you want him instead of the tufted titmouse.

Mr. Titmouse has been needle felted, a time consuming process in which wool is repeatedly poked by a single barbed needle until the desired shape is formed. Great care has been taken to accurately depict his markings, size and colors. He stands on sturdy wire feet and is life size at 6 inches long with black glass eyes. I made my titmouse extra chubby, but if you want a slimmed down version, please ask!

Your bird is custom made once you place your order***. I usually ship your order within 3-6 days of payment, but please allow me up to 2 weeks to get your order done, especially during busy holiday times or for multiple orders. If you need your order by a certain date, please let me know! I also offer gift certificates- please check out my shop! During the Christmas rush, I am overloaded with orders by the end of October, so please order early!

Please remember that these birds are not meant to be handled by small children.

***I have a limited amount of birds in my inventory ready to ship out within 2 days. Please refer to my announcement on the first page of my shop for an updated listing of what is available.
