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.
