Plural of "Tufted Titmouse"


Recommended Posts

Nevermind that "Titmouse" seems inherently embarrassing to begin with :tongue_smilie:, but is the plural "Titmice"? Or "Titmouses"? Or something else? Or do you just say, "Look at all the small, crested grey birds on the suet?" :D

I remember having to sing a song about them in the Mikado. . .

Once I was watching a nature show on PBS about birds. The expert, from the UK, kept calling them t*i*t*s...:lol:

I have this British voiceover in my head and it's talking about small crested t*i*t*s in a very serious manner....

:lol:

 

Have you seen the type that live in California? They are bigger t*i*t*s than most. :D

All chickadee-type birds are quite properly called t*i*t*s in the UK. :D

 

A particularly pretty one is the blue t*i*t - - here's a picture.

I have so many dirty sounding shirts and bumper stickers people have given me thanks to bird names (I studied ornithology seriously for a while in college).

 

Of course, that's nothing to those that study mycology. Those fungi have some interesting-shall we say- structures that border on vulgar :lol:.
