[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Tufted Titmouse is a frequent winter visitor to our feeders. They usually travel in pairs or small flocks, sometimes even joining other birds such as Chickadees in little groups.

I have tried to photograph these little bundles of activity many times and usually am disappointed in the end results. They are always flitting back and forth from feeder to tree perch, where they finish eating the sunflower seeds.

This particular bird was photographed up at Sand Run Metro Park near Akron. It was with a small group of other titmouse and Chickadees who were traveling through a grove of mixed pine trees and hardwoods.

In diffused light conditions such as this one, you have obtained a flawless image of this cute bird, Ron. Your exif data shows ISO rating at 800. To share my frustration, I have tried several times to use high ISO and invariably landed up with grainy/noisy images.
Your image is tack sharp and the exposure level is uniformly perfect on every bit of it.
Salute you for your immaculate skills with a tinge of envy. :)

Hello Ron,
A very nice visitor indeed....His shape is close to the European Crested Tit....Very nice little fellow. A top quality image from a exceptional POV.

Wonderful image,beautiful details and color.
