The length of the bird is 13-17 cm., The wingspan is 23-26 cm. It has a rather bright plumage, a bright yellow abdomen with a wide black stripe from the breast to the tail. On the head of a bird there is a “cap” of black color, which gives off metallic luster. And on the sides are white cheeks. On the nape of the bird there is a yellowish-white speck, and a black stripe collar surrounds the neck. The back of the bird is yellow-green or bluish-gray and has a slight olive tinge on the shoulders. Tail and wings bluish. On the wings you can see a thin white transverse strip.

How does a bird tit

There are other types of tits. The most common of them are such as:

  • Blue Tit Blue Tit.This bird is a little smaller, and its cap is pale blue, not black, like that of a great tit.
  • Tit Puhlyak (or brown-headed tit). Something like a sparrow. The color is gray, the cap is dark. But unlike the sparrow it has a gray back, and not a brown one. The beak is much thinner than that of a sparrow, and the bird is a little smaller.
  • Sinitsa Moskowka. You can meet in the spruce forest. At first, she was called a tit mask, as her cheeks and cap resembled a mask that was put on her head. However, over time, the letter "A" smoothly migrated to the "O" and turned Moskow. Something like a powder, but much less. On the back of the head there is a characteristic “bald spot”, according to which this bird is distinguished.
  • Tit Grenadier. If you are very lucky, then in a high pine forest you can see a crested bird - grenadier.
