Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Common and conspicuous in woods, forests, parks, gardens, and hedges in farmland. Often visits bird feeders and uses nest boxes. Plumage distinctive, with white cheeks surrounded by black cap and bib, yellow underparts. Appreciably larger and more boldly patterned than Eurasian Blue Tit, which often occurs alongside Great Tit. Male has broader black stripe down belly than female, and juvenile (seen in summer–early autumn) has yellowish wash to face, drabber plumage overall.
