I heard a bird making a whistling type call in a patch of woods Saturday. It seemed to be coming from about 30 feet back in the woods. My first impression, was that the call sounded similar to an Eastern Bluebird's call. Could it be a variation of the Bluebird's call?
Just between you and me, I decided to try to imitate the call. Don't tell anyone because this is probably not a nice thing to do to a bird. Anyhow, I was able to mimic this call very well by whistling.
Sure enough, the bird came rapidly to the edge of the woods and landed right near me. -What was it? A Tufted Titmouse. The Tufted Titmouse has fooled me quite a few times with the variety of noises it makes. Have you ever had a similar experience?
