A male and a female black-crested titmouse are sitting on the branches of a red-flowered shrub.
The black-crested titmouse (Baeolophus atricristatus), referred to as “black-crested chickadee (Lophophanes atricristatus)” by the author, is a passerine bird in the family Paridae. It is native to southern Texas, Oklahoma, and Mexico. The female’s crest is lighter than the male’s.
