[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo has been released in the reservoir natural of the Biviere di Gela. In Bivere they are reproduced numerous pendulinus.The Penduline Tit is not a tit at all, though it certainly looks like one. Adult Penduline Tits are very distinctive with their grey heads and bold black eye-masks, duller on the females, but the juveniles can be puzzlingly dull. They look basically all brown but their small size, tit-like manner and rounded greyish-brown heads should separate them from all small birds except juvenile Bearded Tits which are larger, longer-tailed and have heavily patterned wings.

Breeds and winters in and around reedbeds, ponds and ditches, nesting in nearby trees.

Penduline Tits build extraordinary nests which hang like a christmas stocking from the overhanging branches of a tree such as a willow.

Birds breeding in most of Europe migrate west or south. Mostly to Mediterranean countries. Birds in southern Europe are mostly resident.
