Titmouse at the feeder

Tufted Titmouse, Kennebunk Maine

I spent a few moments on the back deck yesterday attempting to catch a Ruby-throated Hummingbird at the feeder…without success. But while I was there, I took a few pics of the other birds coming…including a few Tufted Titmice. This one is using the Mini-Squirrel Buster feeder I resorted to for mealworms, after nothing else would keep the Squirrels from emptying the mealworms three times a day…which was just too expensive to keep up. The Squirrel Buster works fairly well. I have to shake the mealworms down occasionally, but at least most of them go to the birds. 🙂 I put them out for Bluebirds, of course, but the Titmice and Chickadees like them too.
