Oak Titmouse (Baeolophus inornatus)

General Description: Oak Titmice (Baeolophus inornatus) are small, sexually monomorphic songbirds. They are plain gray above, a little lighter under with a tinge of buff, and have a crest. Oak Titmice look almost exactly like Juniper Titmouse, but Oak Titmice have a slightly shorter bill, are a bit more buffy (less gray), and the calls and songs are different.

Taxonomy: Passeriformes, Paridae. Formerly lumped with Juniper Titmouse as the Plain Titmouse (Baeolophus inornatus).

Where to Find: Don't look for Oak Titmice around Las Vegas. Rather, look for them in the dry oak woodlands of central and southern California, although they do range north to southern-most Oregon and south to northern-most Baja California.
