TITMOUSE - Titmice are closely related to Chickadees and share feeder behavior with them of carrying food from the feeder to be consumed on another perch. It is common to see them fly to a feeder, sort through the seeds for a second or two, then select one and fly back to the woods to eat it or hide it. While sorting they are judging the weight, as a way of guessing the fat content to get the one with the most nutrition for the effort.
