The black-crested titmouse is a passerine that is found in parts of Texas, Mexico, and Central America. They were once considered a part of the tufted titmouse species but DNA testing as well as vocal differences have recently led to classification as their own species. The two species will hybridize in southeastern Texas where there ranges over lap. Both the black-crested and tufted titmouse are cavity nesters that scavenge for seeds and insects on the ground.
