Whither All the Titmice?

I enjoy feeding and watching the birds and wildlife in my backyard here in Norwood.

This year I have noticed a missing guest that has been a mainstay at my feeder for years.

The Tufted Titmouse is absent for the most part, and was wondering if you or anyone else has noticed this, too? Is there a reason or a disease that has wiped out the titmouse?

I would like to hear from you to see if anyone else has noticed this.

I responded that still see titmice on occasion, but perhaps not as often in the past.

How about you?
