A mature titmouse can be identified with its gray chest and black forehead. 

But there are other variety of this species that is black crested.

It possess a loud voice despite of it size a redundant sound of twiddle-twiddle is commonly heard with this kind of specie.  They can be found in the places of South Dakota, Quebec, and other places experiencing a gradual fall and winter.  Titmouse seems to be covered a lot in our culture and mythological aspects, so let us start in discussing its symbols.

These creatures are cheerful, merrily singing from the branches of tree, not thinking if there’s any impending danger to come. They are also regarded as the keeper of knowledge and a mystic creature. Titmouse possess the same quality of the weasel to uncover the truth, the only difference is titmouse is often associated with the spirit world and the deeper knowledge. 

Titmouse is teaching us that if we just observe carefully and meditate, the truth with be presented to us.  Moreover concentration can help us reach a higher sense of knowledge.

Titmouse that possesses an enormous sound quality despite of its size is sending us a message about the influence of smaller things.  Remember the story in the Bible about David and Goliath, the titmouse also wants us to realize that size is not a factor in a real battle. 

We are going in a war on our daily basis, war against poverty, crime and other things that serve as a hurdle to a peaceful life, titmouse is telling us that the bet armament in this kind of war is our abilities and talents, and so it’s best to utilize them every day.

Titmouse is also telling us to express our opinion, no matter how small that insight is.  Your group needs your advice, it may not seem like it, but they are just waiting for you to pinpoint your opinion.  You probably are working on a huge project right now and your colleagues are not seeing much cooperation from you. 

Don’t disappoint them; there is a chance that a small opinion is just the answer they are waiting for.

People with a titmouse totem are naturally curious, they want to explore and know everything, and they are born inventors and have a gift to recreate things in their own way.  When this creature presented itself to you, he’s probably asking you to change your old habit and start anew. 

Change is not bad and not something to be feared of.  Changes are made to create a better you.  Your old habit might not suffice to support you today, not just financially speaking consider also your social behavior.

Titmouse teaches us to express our ideas but with the right timing, laying a solid foundation to build your plan is a good defense.  Preparation and waiting for the right time to execute your plan in order to achieve your hopes and dreams.  How amazing that a creature this small can teach us a lot of things.  Meditate on a titmouse and ask for the message he wants to tell you.
