Fairly common in wooded and forested habitats, parks, gardens, hedges in farmland; sometimes visits bird feeders. Often travels in groups, at times joining with flocks of other tits and small woodland birds. High-pitched, fussy calls add to restless demeanor. Attractive pink, black, and -white plumage and very long tail distinctive. Adults in northern Europe have white head without broad black eyebrows, whiter underparts. Juveniles (seen in summer–early autumn) have brown head sides; become like adult by winter.
