Bridled Titmouse

Baeolophus wollweberi

The normal range that we find these birds is central to southeastern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico and southward into Old Mexico. Like its cousins the Oak and the Juniper Titmouse, this bird enjoys oak and juniper woodlands or sometimes riparian areas.

We often find the Bridled Titmouse in communal groups. It is common for the communal members to assist with the nesting duties.

As with its cousins, the range for these birds does not change with the seasons. They are resident wherever we find them. Our bird lives mostly in Mexican highlands, but they also live in the sky islands of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico.

Information collected by banding shows these birds may live to six or seven years of age.

Today’s science recognises four subspecies of Bridled Titmouse. B. w. vandevenderi is resident in central Arizona north of the Gila River. B. w. phillipsi lives in Arizona south of the Gila River. B. w. wollweberi lives in northern Mexico. B. w. caliginosus lives in southern Mexico.
