Tufted Titmouse

What a strange name :)  We saw a pair in Forest Heights about a mile from our house while coming home from a bike ride.  I almost wrote them off as the usual sparrow or robin, since that's all I see near people's houses it seems like, but on second glance, I saw that it wasn't something I recognized.  It was quite the adventure figuring out what it was, since I'd never heard of a titmouse before.  Did you know that the plural is titmice?

Here's more info, here's a rotten picture :)
