Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This dashing medium-sized tit can be found in broadleaf and mixed hill forests, as well as adjacent parks and gardens. Utterly unmistakable, with a bright yellow face and nape, which contrast smartly with a black crest, throat, and breast. Wings are gray and black with white spots and bars. Gregarious; often in small flocks of its own species or with large mixed feeding flocks. Song is a bright, repetitive “chew-wee-ee, chew-wee-ee, chew-wee-ee.” Calls vary, but usually incorporate several sharp notes and one or two lower, buzzier notes.
