Some interesting things about the Titmouse I picked up from Wikipedia:
"The Tufted Titmouse is a small songbird from North America, a species in the tit and chickadee family. Their range is expanding northwards, possibly due to increased availability of winter food at bird feeders. Tufted titmice tend to be curious about their human neighbors and can sometimes be spotted on window ledges peering into the windows to watch what's going on inside."<-I have seen them do this while I worked at my drawing table! I love these little "Winter Birds". They always make me smile, and when I hear their scolding call, as I go out in the deep snow to gather more firewood, I even giggle.
