Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Tiny, long-tailed, fluffy gray balls that are constantly in motion. Active, twittering flocks move quickly through landscapes with low bushes. Distinctly drab gray-brown, always scruffy. In flocks, except when building their nest, a hanging clump of mossy vegetation. Short, black bill. There are multiple populations that differ slightly: eye color ranges from dark to pale, and some have black cheek.
