Long Tailed Tit

LONG TAILED TIT
Aegithalos caudatus



The Long Tailed Tit is easily recognisable with its distinctive colouring, and a tail that is bigger than its body. Like most of our Tits, they rove our woodland and hedgerows. This last few years I have been seeing more of these each year.

I have 2 Silver Birtch trees at the bottom of my back garden... these little fellow arrive most days chattering away in groups of upto 30 birds.



Both males and females are black, white and pale pink, with distinctive white crowns. These are one of my favorite birds to see in our garden.

These are beautiful, Tom. And they have the right name for such a long tail.
