Spring Bird Song Crash Course day two – Tufted titmouse

Similar to the chickadee the Tufted titmouse sings a sweet, loud multi-noted spring song that sounds like a declarative “peter-peter-peter.” The titmouse will  often sing a rising or falling song and can even change up the tempo mid song. 

Similar too chickadee, Carolina wren, or Northern Cardinal
