Long-tailed Tit

Aegithalos caudatus

Description:

Small passerine bird, a tit but not from a family Paridae, it belong to family Aegithalidae. Like all tits, the tiny beak gives it away easily. The bird appears round and tiny, with a length of 13 to 15 cm - but more than half of the length is in that long narrow tail. Predominant colors are buff, white and black, with buff abdomen and white-whitish.

Habitat:

Seen on our balcony feeders in winter. This birds are our regular visitors in autumn and winter time, and we see them regularly from our window in garden and on feeders... When it becomes warmer in Alps and Jura, they take off, and we see them rarely. We live in urban, or rather semi-urban setting around Geneva; and our region is quite wooded and close to nature and flanks of Jura mountain range and its Natural Reserve.
