Crested Tit

It may not be a very colourful bird but it can be easily recognised with its distinctive short, spiky crest, black and white head and its black eye strip. Its bill is also black, the upperparts are grey-brown and the underparts are whitish. It is somewhat a talkative bird and it makes a constant sound “zee zee zee” which is a soft and bubbly trill and when repeated becomes the bird's song.

This lovely bird has been known to visit our gardens in search of food and will eat from bird tables and feeders.

The best foods to offer them are suet-based that include insects or mealworms, as these will provide the protein and energy that is crucial for them to survive during the colder weather.
