TTT Challenge: Tufted Titmouse and Tiny Tim

Tufted Titmouse

What a funny name for such a beautiful little bird.  Tufted titmice are small birds that are found in the eastern United States.  They remain year-round and prefer deciduous wooded areas, gardens, parks and shrub land areas.  Their song is a “peter, peter, peter” whistle.

Tiny Tim sings “Tiptoe Through the Tulips”

A song of another type can be heard from Tiny Tim, a rather strange performer from the 1960s.  He gained fame in the U.S. singing the old 1920s song, “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” in a falsetto voice, while he accompanied himself on the ukelele.

 

The letter “T” is featured this week in Frizztext’s A-Z Challenge.  For more interpretations of “T,”  click here.

    Technical question: What lens are you using (do I recall you use a Sony camera?).

    1. I use a Canon EOS Rebel T3 with a 75-300 zoom lens. Nothing fancy, just basic stuff.
