Long Tailed Tit

By nglen
Taken in the garden today.

Long-Tailed Tit . ( Aegithalos caudatus ) Length 14 cm.

The tiny rounded body and slender tail of the Long tailed Tit gives it a ball and stick shape, that is quite unique among European birds.

In summer family parties move noisily through bushes and undergrowth, but in the winter they often travel through woodland in much larger groups, crossing gaps between trees .

Feeding flocks often resemble animated feather dusters.

The plumage can look black and white but at close range has a pinkish wash to the underpatrs and pinkish buff look on their back.

It has a tiny stubby bill.

Voice: High, thin, colourless seee seee seee short abrupt low trrp or zerrp.

Nesting: Rounded nest of Lichen., moss, cobwebs and feathers with a side entrance in
