While commonly referred to as “tits” throughout much of the English-speaking world, these birds are called either “chickadees” (onomatopoeic, derived from their distinctive “chick-a dee dee dee” alarm call)[1] or “titmice” in North America. The name titmouse is recorded from the 14th century, composed of the Old English name for the bird, mase (Proto-Germanic *maison, German Meise), and tit, denoting something small. The former spelling, “titmose”, was influenced by mouse in the 16th century.[2] Emigrants to New Zealand presumably identified some of the superficially similar birds of the genus Petroica of the family Petroicidae, the Australian robins, as members of the tit family, giving them the title tomtit, although, in fact, they are not related.
