The Eastern Phoebe is a tyrant flycatcher that breeds in eastern North America, although its normal range does not include the southeastern coastal United States.
The breeding habitat of the eastern phoebe is open woodland, farmland and suburbs, often near water. This phoebe is insectivorous, and often perches conspicuously when seeking food items. It also eats fruits and berries in cooler weather.

The song of the Tufted Titmouse is usually described as a whistled peter-peter-peter, although this song can vary in approximately 20 notable ways.  Its habitat is deciduous and mixed woods as well as gardens, parks, and shrublands. Although the tufted titmouse is non-migratory and originally native to Ohio and Mississippi, factors such as bird feeders have caused these birds to occupy a larger amount of territory across the United States and stretching into Ontario, Canada.  From 1966 – 2015 the tufted titmouse population has increased by more than 1.5% per year throughout the northeastern U.S., Michigan, and Wisconsin.
