Long-tailed Tit

Fairly widespread across Europe and Asia in wooded and forested habitats, parks, gardens, and hedges in farmland; sometimes visits bird feeders. Often travels in groups, at times joining with flocks of other tits and small woodland birds. High-pitched, fussy calls add to restless demeanour. Distinctive: tiny and fluffy with attractive pinkish, black, and white plumage and a very long tail. Some plumage variation across the range; adults in northern Europe have a white head without broad black eyebrows and whiter underparts, while those in southern Europe are darker. Juveniles (seen in summer-early autumn) have brown head sides; become like an adult by winter.
