Great Tit

About the Great Tit

The Great Tit is a widespread and common species throughout Europe and Asia. It is resident, and most Great Tits do not migrate. Great Tits are easy to recognize, with its broad black line down its yellow front. The neck and head are black with white cheeks and ear coverts. This is a common and popular European garden bird, due to its acrobatic performances when feeding on nuts or seed. It will join winter tit flocks with other species.
