Posted on August 9, 2019August 11, 2019 by WillemFriday/ bushtits There was a bunch of little bushtits in the camelia in front of my house this morning, and I took a few pictures. Bushtits (Psaltriparus minimus) are tiny little drab-gray birds that are very active and social. They do not migrate, and are found year-round on the west coast of Mexico and North America, all the way to the Pacific Northwest. Their diet consists mostly of larvae and insects, as well as spiders. They do eat seeds, berries, and fruit — in seasons when insects are not as abundant.
