Willow tit

Poecile montana


Difficult one to identify from a distance and a fleeting moment I saw it... both Marsh and Willow tit could fit here, I went with Willow because I have impression there is a lighter-coloured panel along secondaires... Small tit, maybe 10 to 11 cm in length; with brown back and whitish chest and belly, and a buff tinge toward wings. There is a characteristic black cape, black extending to the nape, and distinguished black bib.


Common but discreet resident (lifer for me) of Eurasian mountainous forests, prefers coniferous ones. Here seen on edges of such forest, edges giving to mountain pastures in French so-called Pre-Alps.
