[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Marsh Tit, Parus palustris (synonym Poecile palustris), is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common resident breeder throughout temperate Europe and northern Asia. It does not breed in Spain, Ireland, Scotland, or the colder northern countries. It is resident, and most birds do not migrate.

The head and neck are glossy blue-black; the chin and upper throat are black, the feathers of the latter edged with white. The cheeks are white, the back is sandy brown with an olive tinge, and the rump browner. The absence of the nape spot distinguishes it at once from the Coal Tit.

The wings and tail are greyish, and there is a clear bar on the former, a further distinction from the Coal Tit. The underparts are greyish white, shading into buff on the flanks. As a rule the upper and under surfaces are more sharply defined than in the Willow Tit. The bill is black, the legs lead-coloured, and the irides very dark brown.

Hello Arunas

A lovely little bird you have posted.He shows very well against that beautiful BG.Excellent DOF and POV.The details are very clear,with excellent focus.Great job.TFS


Splendid birdie, Arunas. Beautiful details and nice warm BG.
Just a little remark - take a look at the lower right corner - there's a tiny branch which attract attention, I think it would be better without it. You can crop off or clone out this disturbing element. Made a WS too, hope you don't mind.

best regards,
