This adorable little guy is a Juniper Titmouse (Baeolophus ridgwayi) and shows why they have their name, sitting in a juniper bush. It opened the seed by hammering it against the branch.

I took those photos at Dead Horse Point State Park. The titmice (there were at least two) were very curious and not at all shy.
