Blue Tit

About the Blue Tit

The Blue Tit is a widespread and common resident breeder throughout temperate and subarctic Europe and western Asia in deciduous or mixed woodlands.

The azure blue crown and dark blue line passing through the eye and encircling the white cheeks to the chin, give the Blue Tit a very distinctive appearance.The young are much yellower than older birds.

This is a common and popular European garden bird, due to its perky acrobatic performances when feeding on nuts or suet. It swings beneath the holder, calling tee, tee, tee or a scolding churr.

The song period lasts almost all the year round, but is most often heard during February to June.
