Tufted Titmouse in the South Kettle Moraine in Waukesha County on February 13, 2016

I checked numerous places as I usually do in the South Kettle Moraine today and the highlight of the day was a Tufted Titmouse. Always hoping for some Red or White-winged Crossbills but that is not happening this year and it looks like there are many untouched cones everywhere. Other birds seen in at distance were American Tree Sparrows, Purple Finches and your everyday common species on probably the coldest day so far in 2016. Images were taken on February 13, 2016.
