While sitting on my deck watching the birds visit my feeders, a small Tufted Titmouse decided my hair would be a perfect addition to her nest. She (the smaller of the pair) hopped on my arm, up my shoulder, onto my head, and tried to pull out tufts of my hair. She worked at it for about 3 full minutes. Sadly, I don’t think she was successful!

    LOL, they are so plucky (pun intended). I have seen them try to pluck the hairs off a live raccoon that fled, helplessly, up a tree. The titmouse was relentless; they are so bold. Thanks for sharing this!
