Blue Tit

Parus caeruleus

Description:

The small blue tit can easily be recognized with its blue and yellow plumage, white cheeks and azure blue crown and dark blue line passing through the eye. It remains a resident of Europe in winter.

Habitat:

A residual forest patch with mixed deciduous and pine trees. Photographed from my bedroom window.

Notes:

This little guy was feeding on the lichen seen on the tree.

Thanks Elsa! My camera is a Nikon D7000. I normally use a 400 mm lens for birds but this one was close to my window and I had a 70-300 mm zoom mounted on the camera at the time.
