Cinereous Tit (Parus cinereus)

Cinereous Tit is one of those birds which are highly active and chit chat along the trees in Indian Sub-continent. They are very playful and have eye catching patterns on their back. They are classified under the Passerines. The typical black, white and grey colors are the identifying features of this little Avian. Using their claws to perch on many kinds of surfaces ranging from branches, to trunks to even roots, they are seen to build nest around this time of the year, ie February.

Distinctive Identifiers:

1. Black hood

2. White cheek

3. Grey back

4. White wing bar

5. White underparts

For the sake of your easy identifying, refer to these pictures featuring the Cinereous Tit in various poses.

  4. Looks very like a Coal Tit, which is the smallest of the three main Tits in Europe. It is the least colourful of them – the Blue Tit and Great Tit have more colour.

    I leave for work at 07.00 when it is still dark and hear the singing of the various Tits and Robins as I walk for the train.
