Black-crested Titmouse in Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge

The Black-crested Titmouse, Baeolophus atricristatus (also known as the Mexican Titmouse), is a small songbird, a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. Once considered a subspecies of the Tufted Titmouse (B. bicolor), it is now recognized as a separate species. It is native to southern Texas, Oklahoma, and east-central Mexico. Vagrants have been seen as far north and east as St. Louis, Missouri.
