Tufted Titmice are one of the most common birds at the PGT year-round. Until I took this picture today I never realized that they have blue feet. I checked several field guides and they don’t mention it but look at this bird close up shows blue legs and feet.

    Recently I saw a titmouse of some type at a state park in Northern Georgia. It was not a tufted as it lacked the black above the beak and the chestnut under the edge of the wings. It was the typical gray and white. The difference was the gray on the flight feathers was bluish and it had bright blue legs/feet.
    What kind of titmouse is this?
