Tufted Titmouse - tuftless

The Tufted Titmouse gets its common name from its "tuft" - or crest, which is prominently displayed on this exited bird.


But often it keeps its crest lowered, or, as in the following photo, has no tuft. It looks like it has just come from a mad barber who administered a buzz-cut, but more likely it is in mid-molt ...


Good birding!
