Oak Titmouse


The Oak Titmouse (Baeolophus inornatus) is most common in oak woodlands but can also be found throughout the foothills and mountains of San Diego County. It nests in cavities in trees, especially old woodpecker holes, and forages in both trees and chaparral.

Did you know? San Diego Natural History Museum research studies show the Oak Titmouse is a fire fugitive, preferring an unburned habitat.

To learn more about the Oak Titmouse, visit the online San Diego County Bird Atlas or check out the book at your local library.
