Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A charming inhabitant of coniferous and mixed woodland, forests, and pine plantations. The only small songbird in northern Europe with a distinct crest; also note the distinctive head pattern, a mostly pale face with a blackish frame to the cheeks. Often joins mixed-species flocks in autumn and winter, feeding mainly at middle levels, even on the ground. Gives a bubbling trill, typically preceded by a high-pitched intro note or two.
