Long-tailed Tit

About the Long-tailed Tit

The Long-tailed Tit is a very small bird with a very long tail. It breeds in most of Europe and Asia and is usually non-migratory, although migration has been observed in North-eastern Europe.

It is closely related to the true tits, and in winter it is often found with tit flocks.

Long-tailed Tits are very restless, constantly on the move as they search for insects and other small food items. They nest in trees or shrub.
